Numerical Simulation of Unidirectional Hoop Composite Laminates under Flexural Loads
Numerical simulation for unidirectional hoop composite laminates under flexural loads was finished. The change of tensile and compressive stresses, the position of local crush and delamination and stiffness degradation were analyzed with parametric program compiled by APDL language in ANSYS. The results showed that composite laminate could bear the load continually after local crush and delamination. Displacements of calculated result with stiffness degradation model matched test results well.
