Multiscale Modeling of Residual Stress Development in Continuous Fiber-Reinforced Unidirectional Thick Thermoset Composites

Figure 6

Simulated evolution of thermally and chemical-shrinkage induced residual stresses in principal directions for the unidirectional glass/polyester laminate (a) at the surface (point [A]) and (b) at the core (point [B]) of the composite.
