Paper Title:
Computational Investigation of Delamination in HAT-Section Laminated Composite Components
  Abstract

This paper aims at developing the numerical of delamination in laminated composite structures. Formation of initial delamination and growth of existing delamination in HAT-Section laminated made of plies of unidirectional carbon fiber reinforced epoxy resin is investigated computationally. Tsai-Hill failure method is employed to predict delamination initiation while delamination propagation is analyzed using linear elastic fracture mechanics (LEFM).The techniques based on LEFM that have been utilized successfully within the framework of the finite element method (FEM) for the simulation of delamination growth, the virtual crack closer technique (VCCT). Finally this paper proposes future work for precise prediction of delamination of unidirectional carbon fiber reinforced epoxy resin HAT-Section specimens.
