A Normalisation Procedure for Biaxial Bias Extension Tests
- 129 Downloads
Biaxial Bias Extension tests have been performed on a plain-weave carbon fibre engineering fabric. The test results have been normalised using both the upper and lower bound method proposed by Potluri et al.  and also using a novel alternative normalisation method based on energy arguments. The normalised results from both methods are compared and discussed.
