Development of a combined interface and extended finite element method to predict delamination in composite structures
For this work, an user-defined element (UEL) in ABAQUS was developed in conjunction with a triangular traction separation law, as the Cohesive Zone Model, that combines the Extended Finite Element and Cohesive Element ...
Micro damage initiation and progression for isotropic and composites structure using strain invariant failure theory
In this work, we focus our attention on initiation and progressive damage of isotropic and composite structures using Strain Invariant Failure Theory (SIFT) at the micro-level. The stress-based tools are very popular to ...
Corrosion behavior of AI-AI2O3 composites in aerated 3.5% chloride solution
Aluminum based metal matrix composites are finding many applications in engineering. Of these Al-Al2O3 composites appear to have promise in a number of defense applications because of their mechanical properties. However, ...
