Abstract

As a response to the rampant increase in research activity within reliability in the past few decades, and to the lack of a conclusive framework for composite applications, this article attempts to identify the most relevant reliability topics to composite materials and provide a selective review. Available reliability assessment methods are briefly explained, referenced and compared within an unified formulation. Recent developments to confer efficiency in computing reliability in large composite structures are also highlighted. Finally, some general conclusions are derived along with an overview of future directions of research within reliability of composite materials and their influence on design and optimization.
