Abstract : This report presents results concerning the effect of delaminations on static and fatigue strength of carbon fibre composites. The delaminations have been introduced artificially into solid laminates and sandwich structures by means of folded teflon patches. The effects of delaminations caused by low energy impact have also been investigated.
