Description

Defects may be introduced in composites during processing and fabrication. They include contaminants, porosity, inclusions, delaminations, and nonuniform fiber and matrix distributions. Damage induced in service under loading and environmental variations includes matrix cracking, delamination, fiber breakage, and dispersed defects, such as matrix ageing and degradation.
