HELICOID INSPIRED COMPOSITES

Notched Bending & Other Properties

Notched bending tests performed on soft-polymer based helicoidal-inspired laminates show that decreasing the pitch angle leads to: 

a decreasing initiation value of fracture toughness; and 

a more stable, highly dissipative failure process characterized by a larger post-initiation load-bearing capability and delayed catastrophic failure
