Determination of Material Properties for Progressive Damage Analysis Using Abaqus


Well-designed laminated composites do not fail suddenly but rather develop microscopic progressive damage that leads to changes in macroscopic material response, such as matrix cracks, stiffness reduction, and failure. Simulation techniques are able to predict damage initiation and evolution as a function of service conditions. A method for obtaining material properties for damage analysis of Glass and Carbon fiber composites is proposed. The method is based on minimizing the error between simulation predictions and available experimental data. The resulting material properties are then used to validate the method by comparison with additional experimental data for different laminate stacking sequences of the same material system. Mesh sensitivity is also studied.
