Abstract

A high-fidelity composite damage model is presented and applied to predict low-velocity impact damage, compression after impact (CAI) strength and crushing of thin-walled composite structures. The simulated results correlated well with experimental testing in terms of overall force-displacement response, damage morphologies and energy dissipation. The predictive power of this model makes it suitable for use as part of a virtual testing methodology, reducing the reliance on physical testing.
