Open-hole shear test data of composite laminates



Digital image correlation (DIC) and X-Ray CT data of open-hole composite specimens subjected to shear loading using the modified Arcan's fixture (MAF). Specimens were made from two carbon fibre reinforced material systems. Effects of ply thickness and loading direction (positive vs negative) shear loading were investigated.
