Abstract
Polymer matrices reinforced with structural fibres as carbon, glass or aramid (fibre-reinforced polymers or FRPs) possess excellent specific mechanical properties as strength and stiffness. As a result, structural composites are commonly used in applications driven by weight reduction in aerospace, although they are continuously expanding to other industrial sectors, such as automotive, energy, sports or civil engineering. Excellent examples of carbon composite applications in aerospace are found in the last two civil airplanes developed by Airbus and Boeing, the A350 and 787 Dreamliner, respectively, in which composites made up to 50?% in weight of structural parts ranging from fuselage barrels or wings to stabilizers. However, despite the increasing number of engineering applications of structural composites, the accurate prediction of their mechanical behaviour still remains an arduous task because of the complexity of the failure mechanisms involved, specially at the microscopic level.
