Abstract [en]

A material model including the failure behaviour is derived for a thin unidirectional (UD) composite ply. The model is derived within a thermodynamic framework and the failure behaviour is modelled using continuum damage mechanics. The following features describe the model: (i) The ply is assumed to be in a plane state of stress. (ii) Three damage variables associated with the stress in the fibre-, transverse and shear directions, respectively, are used. (iii) The plastic behaviour of the matrix material is modelled. (iv) The difference in the material response in tensile and compressive loading is modelled. (v) Rate dependent behavior of plasticity and damage (i.e. strength) is modelled.
