Abstract

This paper describes recent progress on materials modelling and numerical simulation of fibre reinforced composite panel structures subjected to transverse impact loads. A model of impact damage is presented which includes the contribution from delamination by introducing cohesive interfaces in the laminate model, which may degrade or fail when a delamination failure energy criterion is reached. A continuum damage mechanics model is applied to model the delamination failure at these interfaces which has been implemented in a commercial explicit finite element (FE) code. A comparison of contact load pulses and failure modes from numerical simulations and drop tower impact tests shows good agreement for the prediction of delamination damage and penetration under a range of impact conditions. Results show the importance of including delamination damage in the impact models.
