Periodic Report - RICM (Reliability of the interfaces on composite materials)

Project ID: 230991
Funded under: FP7-PEOPLE


Composite materials are widely used in aeronautical, civil and mechanical structures that require highly reliable long-term operation. The design and structural reliability of advanced materials, like composites or functionally graded, require a better understanding of how the fracture process initiates and progresses to final failure. There is a demand for these materials to support both static and dynamic loads without the risk of brittle fracture. The performance of advanced materials is directly linked to the reliability of interfaces.

Many of the deliverables were published in seven peer review journals: Computational Material Science (three papers), Journal of Nonlinear Mechanics, International Journal of Fracture, Journal of Mechanical Science and Technology and Annals of the University Ovidius Constanta.
