## Composite Damage Models in Abaqus/Explicit

Abaqus/Explicit provides additional damage models for fiber-reinforced
composite materials.
The built-in damage model discussed in Lecture 9 can only be used with
elements that have a plane stress formulation.
Plane stress, membrane, and shell elements.
User-defined material subroutines (VUMATs) are available to extend this
capability to elements with other stress states (3D, for example).
Composite damage VUMATs
Two routines are available:
Unidirectional fiber VUMAT (extension of built-in capability to include
3D)
Woven fabric VUMAT
Available as a built-in user subroutine
Both of these routines require user input to specify how the composite

## Woven Fabric VUMAT

A schematic of the assumed woven material
is shown to the right.

## The fiber directions are assumed to be, and to

remain, orthogonal (no wrinkling due to shear).
The constitutive stress-strain relations are formulated in a local1
Cartesian coordinate system with base vectors aligned with the fiber
directions.
The fabric reinforced ply is modeled as a homogeneous orthotropic
elastic material with the potential to sustain progressive stiffness
degradation due to fiber/matrix cracking, and plastic deformation under

Three global damage variables are used and are associated with fiber
fracture along the 1- and 2-directions and matrix micro-cracking due to
shear deformation.
The model differentiates between tensile and compressive fiber failure
modes by activating the corresponding damage variable depending on
the stress state in the fiber directions

Element deletion
The VUMAT provides an option to delete elements when any one
tensile/compressive damage variable along the fiber directions
reaches a maximum specified value, or when the plastic strain due
to shear deformation reaches a maximum specified value.
Calibration
The elastic constants and the fiber tension/compression strengths
are easily measured from standard coupon tests in uniaxial
The calibration of damage evolution in the fiber failure modes is
based on the fracture energy per unit area of the material, which
can be measured experimentally.
The shear response is usually calibrated with a cyclic tensile test on
a 45 laminate, where the strains along the fiber directions can be
neglected.

Stable time increment

to understand

## When modeling composites at the laminate level, very small element

dimensions can be encountered
This can lead to a very small stable time increment, requiring a large
number of increments to complete an analysis
For a typical composite where Le0.2 mm, 1.5e9, E65 GPa,
and 0.3, t is on the order of 1e10 seconds.
To simulate 1 millisecond will require 10 million increments!
Some ideas for dealing with this follow.

Modeling Techniques
Stable time increment
Use double precision if the number of increments will exceed 300,000
To attempt a more time economical solution, the following may be helpful
Mass scaling can be used to speed up the simulation for the
purposes of checking model setup
Dynamic response will be affected
Group layers of common material orientation together and model as
one layer
Use continuum macroscopic (i.e., anisotropic global) properties to
model the composite instead of using a mixed modeling technique

Modeling Techniques
Interior surfaces for erosion
If erosion will be considered in an impact analysis, care must be taken when
defining contact
Interior mesh surfaces must be included in the contact definitions

## The inclusion of interior faces is not currently supported in Abaqus/CAE, and

requires a manual edit to the input file. For example:
*SURFACE, NAME=interior_elems, TYPE=ELEMENT
all_elems, interior
This creates a surface named interior_elems consisting of the interior
faces of the element set all_elems, which can now be used in the contact
domain
