Modeling the Damage Progression in the Composite Structure Subjected to Static Contact Crush

Abstract:

Article Preview

Based on the classic laminate theory, a progressive damage model has been incorporated into the composite structure analysis by using a commercial code, ABAQUS, via one of its user-defined subroutine, UGENS. The developed user subroutine can be applied to simulate fiber and matrix damage processes in the general composites structures. The responses of flat laminate subjected to static contact crush have been studied to verify the efficiency of the presented damage method. The predicted load-displacement relationships, damage distribution were obtained and compared with the corresponding experiments, and the results were found to be in good agreement.
