Fatigue Delamination Analysis of Composite Laminates with a Central Hole Using Interface Elements

Abstract:

Article Preview

In this paper a solid like interface element along with a fatigue constitutive law is used to study the damage behaviour of holed composite laminates under cyclic loading. For this purpose a user element routine and a material routine was developed include the interface element and to handle the formulation of progressive fatigue damages. The developed procedure is used to predict delamination initiation and growth in mixed-mode condition for a typical composite laminate. The obtained results for damage and stresses are compared with the available results in the literature.
