Abstract : Two approaches were used to predict the tensile strength of unidirectional fibrous composites. The first, based on a criterion of maximum tensile traction on the failure plane, was applied to predominantly brittle systems. The second, based on the maximum distortional energy concept, was applied to predominantly ductile systems which manifest yield before fracture. (Author)
