    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Dynamic fracture process of the woven cloth reinforced composites under tensile load is studied by multi-spark high-speed photography with reflective arrangement. The crack trajectory at different instant is shown by the specimen-focused images. Some important fracture characteristics such as crack tip position; crack length and critical load are determined, and microscopic fracture mechanisms of woven composites are analyzed by SEM
