Meshfree Continuum Damage Mechanics Modelling for 3D Orthogonal Woven Composites
A Meshfree approach for continuum damage modeling of 3D orthogonal woven composites is presented. Two different shape function constructions, Radial basis (RB) function and Moving kriging (MK) interpolation, are utilized corresponding with Galerkin method in the Meshfree approach. The failure of two different unit cell models, straight-edge and smooth fabric unit cell model respectively, is compared.
