Abstract

The paper investigates feasibility of application of embedded element technique to damage modelling of textile composites on an example of a woven laminate. The geometrical model of yarns is imported to Abaqus form 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 curve is simulated using continuous damage mechanics approach based on Puck damage criterion and Zinoviev-type damage variables. The results show acceptable agreement with the damage modelling based on continuous mesh and with experimental data.
