Abstract

Hybrid glass laminates with thin carbon plies were tested in tension. Results are presented showing the effects of the proportion and absolute thickness of the carbon on the response and failure mechanisms. It is demonstrated that with the right choice of parameters catastrophic failure can be avoided, and a more gradual, pseudo-ductile failure achieved.
