Destruction Process Analysis of Laminated Ceramic Composites Based on APDL
Laminated composites are the effective ways to toughen Al2O3 ceramics at present. The destruction process analysis of laminated ceramic composite is studied in this paper taking the Al2O3/ZrO2 ceramic composite as the example through the APDL programming. The micro model is established in ANSYS. And the failure stresses of each ply of the ceramic can be calculated by micromechanics method. Then the calculated failure stresses are compared to the simulated failure stresses. The micro model can visualize the destruction process of laminated ceramic composite. The failure criteria of composite material can be self-defining in ANSYS by using APDL. Some ideas of ANSYS application on composite material are given in this paper.
