Abstract
Two-dimensional triaxially braided composites (2DTBCs) are attractive in crashworthiness design because their fracture can dissipate a significantly larger amount of impact energy than other light-weight materials. This paper aims at predicting the fracture energy, Gf, and the effective length of the fracture process zone, cf, of 2DTBC composites. Since the fracture parameters are best manifested in the scaling properties and are the main parameters in the size effect law, the nominal strengths ...
