short fiber damage composites simulation with Abaqus subroutine
In the 1960s, the first thermoplastics with short fiber reinforcements went on sale. Fiberglass and carbon fiber are the two fiber types that are most frequently employed in short-fiber thermoplastics. The performance of the composite for lightweight applications is improved by the addition of short fibers to thermoplastic resins. Additionally, compared to continuous-fiber composites, short-fiber thermoplastic composites are simpler and less expensive to manufacture. Staple fiber thermoplastics can be employed in a variety of applications thanks to this trade-off between price and effectiveness. This tutorial describes the damage of short fiber composites in Abaqus.
This training package is based on the mentioned article and uses the VUMAT subroutine. It should be mentioned, you can use this subroutine for static, quasi-static, and dynamic analysis with some tricks. In this damage model, the material strength and properties reduction are smooth. This subroutine has been written for shell and continuum shell elements. If you are interested in the UMAT version, you can learn what you need like theory and etc, and write it by yourself.
It would be useful to see Abaqus Documentation to understand how it would be hard to start an Abaqus simulation without any Abaqus tutorial. If you are working on Abaqus composite damage and need some resources about composite FEM simulation, click on the Abaqus composite analysis page to get more than 20 hours of video training packages on composite materials simulation.
After purchase, you can access the software files and subroutines immediately.
The video files will be available 2 months later after purchase.
