This paper investigates the effects of the microstructure of a composite material (including fibre volume fraction, fibre distribution and bonding quality between fibre and matrix) on normalized maximum principal stress under transverse tension and shear of a unidirectional carbon fibre reinforced composite. The results has been verified against physical test results, is vital to instruct the composite manufacturing process and part design criteria. GKN Hybrid Power expressed interest in the work and adjusted the manufacture parameters and design criteria accordingly.
