Composite, stiffened integral structures are becoming of increasing interest in the fields of aeronautics, automotive, nautical, and wind energy, where they are present in core structural applications. A numerical method able to reproduce the complex fatigue mechanisms in a stiffened panel is therefore attractive to improve their performances.

In this chapter, the fatigue delamination/debonding of composite assemblies under Mode I, Mode II, and mixed-Mode I/II loading conditions is simulated by ...
