Consideration of kinking in the laminate design process
Many investigations on endless fibre reinforced plastics have shown that fibre parallel compression evokes different failure mechanisms. The micromechanical background of these failure mechanisms and therefore the according influencing factors are already well analysed. For a better laminate design two physically based models concerning the failure mechanism "kinking" on the one hand and "the non-linear stress-strain relations" on the other hand were combined and integrated in the calculation procedure of the common laminate design process.

The Journal of Plastics Technology is a peer reviewed internet periodical published under the auspices of the Scientific Alliance of Polymer Technology (WAK)
International Polymer Processing, the journal of the Polymer Processing Society, is a discussion forum for the world-wide community of engineers and scientists in the field of polymer processing.
The journal covers research and industrial application in the very specific areas of designing polymer products, processes, processing machinery and equipment.
The Journal of Plastics Technology is indexed in SCOPUS, the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature.
