3D continuum HASHIN progressive Damage for composite materials in ABAQUS (VUMAT Subroutine)
Three-dimensional damage in composite materials is one of the most widely used cases in today’s industry. There is no damage initiation for Three-dimensional composite materials in ABAQUS software. Therefore, coding is required to simulate the damage in these materials. There are different criteria for damage initiation as well as how to reduce the mechanical properties. Three-dimensional HASHIN damage, which involves detecting damage to fibers, matrix, as well as delamination, is very common. It should be mentioned that progressive damage can be done by reducing the properties suddenly or gradually with different energy methods or equations. This training package fully discusses the most widely used criteria in identifying damage initiation as well as the progressive damage in HASHIN damage initiation criterion and gradual progressive damage based on energy method. You can use this subroutine for static and dynamic problems like simple tension or impact! This subroutine detects different modes of failure and gets you accurate result for academic and industrial projects. In this package, you will learn how to write this complex subroutine and use it in your different types of your simulations
