Abstract
TEST SPECIMEN DESIGNS FOR DETERMINING IN-PLANE SHEAR PROPERTIES OF FIBER REINFORCED COMPOSITES WILL BE REVIEWED AND A FEW WILL BE SELECTED FOR DETAILED ELASTIC STRESS ANALYSES BASED ON THIS REVIEW. 2-D ANALYSES WILL BE PERFORMED FOR A NUMBER OF MATERIAL CONFIGURATIONS AND TYPES WITH DUE CONSIDERATION TO ANISOTROPY AND GEOMETRY OF THE TEST SPECIMENS. EFFECTS OF SECONDARY DAMAGE GROWTH MECHANISMS AND MONLINEAR SHEER STRESS-STRAIN RESPONSE ON PERFORMANCE OF THESE SPECIMENS WILL ALSO BE STUDIES. BASED ON RESULTS OF THIS STUDY, AN ATTEMPT WILL BE MADE TO EXPLAIN INCONSISTENCIES IN AVAILABLE TEST DATA. SPECIMEN SHAPES AND SIZES WILL BE OPTIMIZED AND APPROPRIATE TEST PROCEDURES AND DATA INTERPRETATION METHODS WILL BE SUGGESTED.
