Delamination

delamination

[dē‚lam·ə′nā·shən]
(biology)
The separation of cells into layers.
(embryology)
Gastrulation in which the endodermal layer splits off from the inner surface of the blastoderm and the space between this layer and the yolk represents the archenteron.
(engineering)
Separation of a laminate into its constituent layers.

Delamination

Coming apart layer by layer; as in a separation of plies in a plywood panel, either through failure of the adhesive or through failure at the interface of the adhesive and the lamination.

delamination

A failure in a laminated structure characterized by the separation or loss of adhesion between plies, as in built-up roofing or glue-laminated timber.

The measured results of delamination at entry and exit side of the specimen were measured and analyzed using statistical software.
The result is that, while standard vials showed delamination or at least early signs of it, the new SCHOTT vials remained stable.
The different mechanisms of damage encountered in this material are visualized through the acoustic emission and are mainly the matrix cracking, peeling at the fiber/matrix interface, the interlaminar delamination and final rupture of the fibers, which leads to degradation of the composite [9-11].
0] is initial delamination length; h is specimen thickness, [E.
Deep delamination of the bridge structure can be detected even at the reinforcement level due to the uneven heating caused by the voids left by the delamination process.
This test was performed at 77[degrees]C for a total of 120 hours of exposure, in which the Polyfuze graphic showed no visual change and no sign of delamination, and it passed the ASTM D3359-09 tape test upon completion.
