Dual laminate pipes made of thermoset polymer composite structure and thermoplastic liner are the only alternative in pipelines conveying high temperature corrosive fluids. Investigating the bonding between thermoset composite and thermoplastic liner is very important in these pipelines. Calculating the strain energy release rate of first mode of failure is very important criteria in bonding strength and failure of doulas pips. ASTM-D5528 is the standard for experimental test procedure of strain energy release rate of symmetric double cantilever beam. In this study, using the classical laminates theory, the general equation for determination the laminates thicknesses in unlike double cantilever beam is presented, for the first time. To study the validity of the equation, in unlike double cantilever beam samples consists of laminates with different thicknesses are manufactured for the experimental tests. Upper, lower and bonding regions consist of composite made of unidirectional fiberglass/Vinylester resin, PVCU and epoxy or Vinylester primers, respectively. The samples of this study are manufactured base on the practical case studies of chemical fluid pipelines with chlor-alkali process like Arvand Petrochemical units. The main aim of this work is to help manufacturers of these unites equipment to have practical guideline. To qualify the efficiency of the proposed equation, finite element simulation base on the virtual crack closure technique is presented. Good agreement is achieved in comparing the numerical and experimental results that shows the efficiency and accuracy of the proposed equation.
