  abstract  = {In this study, fracture analysis of a fibrous composite
laminate with variable fiber spacing is carried out using Jk-integral
method. The laminate is assumed to be under thermal loading.
Jk-integral is formulated by using the constitutive relations of plane
orthotropic thermoelasticity. Developed domain independent form
of the Jk-integral is then integrated into the general purpose finite
element analysis software ANSYS. Numerical results are generated
so as to assess the influence of variable fiber spacing on mode I
and II stress intensity factors, energy release rate, and T-stress. For
verification, some of the results are compared to those obtained
using displacement correlation technique (DCT).},
