Abstract

A Domain Superposition Technique (DST) is proposed for the simulation of woven fabric composites. Instead of modelling the tows and the likely degenerated resin pocket regions among tows explicitly, DST separately models the tow domain and the global domain which are both non-degenerated, and can thus be easily discretised using the traditional solid elements. During the solution process, the two domains are superimposed by coupling them together to produce the exact results. Numerical simulation shows that the results of DST correlate very well with the results of conventional finite element analysis.
