Abstract

The paper investigates feasibility of application of mesh superposition method (MSP) to damage modeling of textile composites on an example of a woven laminate. The geometrical model of yarns is created using WiseTex software. The yarns and matrix meshes are superimposed using embedded element technique. Damage initiation and development under tensile loading and the resulting stress-strain curves are simulated using continuous damage mechanics approach based on Puck damage criterion and Zinoviev-type damage variables. There was a good agreemenet between the FE simulations and experimental results.
