Damage Mechanics Implementation of Material Design Simulator for Layered Ceramic Composites
The objective of this study is to establish a numerical technique applicable for the assessment of damage characteristics of laminate ceramic. A numerical simulator, which can be used for the optimal material design, was developed based on the damage mechanics approach. To evaluate the internal damage evolution behavior within composite material, generalized damage evolution equation was developed and implemented in way of finite element method. By virtue of an automatic data interface between the commercial FEA results and damage calculation, a simple and cost-effective damage evaluation system is constructed. It was found that the developed system can be used for the evaluation of the material performance of composite.
