In the past, several experimental and analytical studies have been conducted aimed towards predicting the critical thrust force responsible for delamination at the hole exit during drilling. Among these analytical models, few take into account the coupling between bending and stretching often observed in multi-directional (MD) laminates with an un-symmetrical stacking sequence considering the presence of an elliptical crack. In addition, in these analytical models, the tool/composite contact region is modeled without taking into account the chisel edge effect. In the present study, a unique analytical model for critical thrust force prediction has been proposed that explicitly accounts for the effect of the chisel and cutting edges. The interaction zone (composite/chisel edge and composite/principal cutting edge) has been modeled using classical lamination plate theory (CLPT) and linear elastic fracture mechanics (LEFM) principles. In addition, a comparison between the proposed analytical model predictions and experimental results from quasi-static punch tests accompanied with different X-ray tomography observations led to choosing the accurate loading profile developed during drilling.
