Strength Prediction and Test of FRP Composite Laminates with Central Hole
In order to research the static properties of FRP composite laminates with central hole, the numerical simulation and experimental method are used. The simulation is achieved by the finite element analysis tool with the progressive damage method. During the simulation, the Hashion failure criteria and the selective completed material degradation models are adopted. Proper specimens of FRP composite laminates with central hole are prepared and the static tests are carried out. The results indicate that progressive damage method can simulate the failure process of FRP laminates with central hole and the simulative results agree well with the experimental data.
