3D continuum Abaqus HASHIN progressive Damage for composite materials (VUMAT Subroutine)

This tutorial teaches how to simulate damage in 3d continuum composite materials in ABAQUS. As you know, Abaqus does not have any material model for 3d composite materials. So, the user needs to write a customized subroutine to simulate damage initiation and progressive damage for composite materials in ABAQUS. In this package, one of the most practical damage initiation criteria (Hashin) is used to detect failure. It should be mentioned that this subroutine includes gradual progressive damage based on the energy method. This complex subroutine could be used for static and dynamic problems.

Simulation of Unidirectional Composite Damage in ABAQUS


This package introduces and applies various theories to initiate and progress damage in composite materials based on ABAQUS capabilities for different elements. As you know, according to the modeling done by the micro or macro method, the way of defining the Abaqus composite damage completely follows the separate method in ABAQUS. This training package is customized for macro modeling of composite structures.
