A study on diagnosing both isotropic and orthotropic, intentionally damaged laminates

Abstract

Being the most detrimental mode in laminated structures, delamination initially degrades local structural strength, and lastly causes global structural failure, thus necessitating delamination identification at its incipient stages. For identification purposes, a comprehensive numerical and experimental study on delamination within both the laminated isotropic acrylic-glass and orthotropic epoxyglass plates is presented. As the first step, frequency variations in the acrylic-glass plate induced by different-sized delamination are examined at varying the in-plane or out-of-plane location as well as boundary conditions of delamination. Tiny delamination is identified by the use of processed signals of Lamb wave simulated by spectral finite element (SFE) technique in the next step when noticing the delamination-induced changes of frequency to be inefficient for detection purposes. While utilising absorbing layers with the obtained mechanical properties along the axis of symmetry, a quarter of the plate in the SFE domain is modelled. The study is concluded with finding the accurate location and shape of small delamination using A0 or S0 modes. The preference of A0 mode for the delamination identification compared to S0 mode is indicated. Finally, for verification purposes of Lamb wave patterns in real-life applications, a composite epoxy-glass plate is experimentally investigated via laser Doppler vibrometer (LDV).
