Stress distributions in CFRP adhesive laminated plates subjected to static and impact out-of-plane loadings are analyzed using a three-dimensional finite-element method (FEM). For establishing an optimum design method of the laminated plates, the effects of some factors are examined. As the results, it is found that the maximum value of the von Mises equivalent stress σ eqv occurs at the edge of the CFRP’s interfaces. The maximum value of interface shear stress r i at CFRP interface decreases as the reinforced Young’s modulus and the thickness increases. However, the maximum value of σ eqv at the adhesive layer decreases as the reinforced Young’s modulus and the thickness decreases. In addition, the maximum value of r i at the CFRP’s interface of lower reinforced laminates under impact loadings shows opposite characteristics to those under static loadings. For verification of the FEM calculations, experiments were carried out to measure the strains at the interfaces and the laminates plates strengths. Concerning strain and strength prediction based on von Mises equivalent stress, fairly good agreements were found between the numerical and the experimental results. The FEM results of impacted strain are in fairly good consistent with the measured results. Discussion is made on the effects of some factors on interface stress distributions.
