The elastic solution in the vicinity of a traction free edge and an interface crack in cross-ply anisotropic laminates is provided in details for three problems. Complex eigen-pairs and edge stress intensity functions are computed with high accuracy, aimed to serve as benchmark problems against which other numerical methods can be checked.
- A. Laminate
- B. Delamination
- C. Finite-element analysis (FEA), Crack
- Edge stress intensity factors
