This study aims at investigating the mechanical reliability of unidirectional fibre-reinforced composites in view of their design optimization. Owing to the manufacturing process, many uncertainties affect inherently the properties of these materials. Besides, the brittle character of the fibre failure leads to important safety factors that limit their development for engineering applications. The objective is to get a realistic evaluation of the mechanical reliability of such structures whichdoi:10.1051/smdo:2008001 fatcat:df6p6xvsnremtj3gi64hnj5ysm
