|Summary||Experimental and numerical studies of delamination in mode I and II have been carried out on thermoset and thermoplastic carbon fibre composite materials in order to determine critical energy release rates. The influence of fibre orientation around the delamination front have been studied. Results show a great influence of fibre orientation on the delamination propagation. Numerical studies are presented in order to compute energy release rates. Results are compared to experimentation.
Two applications of fracture mechanic using energy release rate values are presented. Then numerical analyses are realised. For these applications a mixed mode criterion is used. The first application concerning delamination caused by local buckling. The second one deals with delamination caused by machining and specially drilling.
