Abstract

Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) is widely used in the industrial field. Delamination damage is one of the main failure forms of FRP laminates. In-depth exploration of fatigue-induced delamination behavior in laminates offers valuable insights for the structural design of FRP composites. The behavior of fatigue delamination hinges significantly on factors such as the stress ratio R. In this paper, experimental data on the relationship between the fatigue delamination growth rate and the strain energy release rate of the adhesively-bonded pultruded glass fiber reinforced polymer double cantilever beam (GFRP DCB) joints were fitted based on the Walker equation. A 2D finite element model based on Virtual Crack Closure Technology (VCCT) is adopted to simulate the fatigue delamination propagation behavior. Finally, the fatigue delamination propagation behavior of the adhesively-bonded pultruded GFRP DCB joints under Mode I loading was successfully simulated by two sets of finite element models.
