This study reviews several fracture models for predicting the residual strength of notched composite laminates. Representative experimental results on the residual strength of composite laminates containing a notch subjected to static uniaxial tensile loading have been collected from open literature. And notched strength data for T300/5208 are analyzed. The various parameters associated with the fracture models have been determined for laminates. Notched strength data sets are compared with fracture models and the applicability of the different fracture models in predicting the notched strength of composite laminates is discussed. And static tests have been performed on 2.0mm depth notched specimen. And the test results are compared with analysis models.
