Fracture Mechanics of Fiber-Reinforced Materials
In plane stress of materials composed of two orthogonal families of strong fibers, the analysis based on the assumption of fiber inextensibility is so simple that it becomes possible to predict the course of an advancing crack or tear, and to determine how the shape of the crack depends on the failure criterion.
