    Abstract

    Although there have been numerous studies of edge delamination growth as a result of tensile loads, edge delamination growth as a result of compressive loads that cause local buckling has not been addressed. This paper discusses the potential for delamination growth in terms of calculated strain-energy release rates. These predictions are compared qualitatively with experimental results.
