Abstract
The delamination fracture energy of graphite/epoxy composites has been examined utilizing a fracture mechanics approach. The material of primary interest was Hercules AS1/3501-6 with comparison testing on HMS/3501-6 and GY70/5208. The principal variables were moisture content, temperature and ply orientation. Both mode I opening and mode II shear stress fields were applied to specimens containing teflon strip notches.
