Abstract

A combined numerical and experimental study was conducted to assess the accuracy of six different methods of data reduction for the mixed-mode bending test. First, the accuracy of the various methods were evaluated by comparison to finite element predictions for a typical laminate. Second, the various methods were applied to double cantilever beam and end-notched flexure test data that had previously been reduced by well-established techniques. These preliminary studies were used to obtain the five most accurate methods. Finally, five laminates were tested in the mixed-mode bending fixture at five mode ratios. The data from these tests were then reduced by the five data reduction methods.
