    Abstract

    The results of an extensive experimental investigation of the fracture behavior of notched graphite/epoxy laminates are presented. Twenty-seven laminates with different stacking sequences and laminate thicknesses have been studied. The data presented herein suggest that a damage tolerant design parameter exists that is relatively independent of ply stacking sequence and laminate thickness.
