Short fiber composite damage (Mean Field Homogenization Model)

 220.0
Short-fiber reinforced thermoplastics are popular in industry for their strength, lightness, and cost-effectiveness. Injection molding enables the creation of complex parts with dispersed short fibers. Failure in these materials is complex, involving various mechanisms like fiber cracking and plastic deformation. Current models for damage and failure are either macroscopic or simplified. A new method evaluates stiffness using continuum damage mechanics. It involves a two-stage model: first, fibers are split into groups (grains), then mean-field homogenization averages stiffness across phases, followed by overall homogenization. This approach simplifies composite geometry modeling. The method was tested on a distal radius plate, calibrated using experiments, and simulated using Abaqus finite element software with UMAT subroutine for damage and input file(INP) code has been used for homogenization. Notice: This package includes instructional video of simulation along with a PDF file explaining the theory and all relations in the package.
