Numerical model for prediction of progressive delamination in woven fabric reinforced composite is proposed in this paper. An orthotropic model is used in which the interface is modeled as bilinear cohesive zone elements subjected to mixed mode loadings. The mixed mode loading is applied through displacements. Mesh insensitive model is obtained at a… CONTINUE READING
