The study of failure processes of composites should be accompanied with the analysis of the nature of failure, three main categories of which may be identified as: the defect accumulation; macrocracks propagation; instantaneous rupture, being a consequence of the cleavage of a weak link. Usually in these type of investigations the consideration is given to one or another type of failure while the conditions of transition from one type of failure to another or a possible change in its character are not discussed. However, the determination of these conditions is crucial for an accurate analysis of the performance of a composite structural component.
