This paper describes recent progress on materials modelling and numerical simulation of the impact response of fibre reinforced composite structures. A continuum damage mechanics model for fabric reinforced composites is developed as a framework within which both in-ply and delamination failure may be modelled during impact loading. Damage evolution equations are derived and appropriate materials parameters determined from experiments. The model for in-plane failure has been implemented in a commercial explicit finite element code, and new techniques are used to model the laminate as a stack of shell elements tied via contact interface conditions. The code is applied to predict the response of carbin fabric reinforced epoxy plates impacted at different velocities by a steel impactor. A comparison of structural response and failure modes from numerical simulations and impact tests is given which shows a good agreement for the prediction of delamination damage at low impact energies and fracture and penetration at higher impact energies.
