Un-notched and notched tensile response and damage accumulation of quasi-isotropic carbon/epoxy hybrid laminates were studied. It was confirmed that ply fragmentation demonstrated previously as a successful ductility mechanism can be transferred to multi-directional laminates. Furthermore, notch-insensitivity was demonstrated by locally active fragmentation in notched quasi-isotropic specimens.
