This paper presents a new damage model for simulating fatigue-driven delamination in composite laminates. This model is developed based on the Thick Level Set approach (TLS) and provides a favorable link between damage mechanics and fracture mechanics through the non-local evaluation of the energy release rate. Previously, this approach has been...

Permeability of virtual cement seems to exceed experimental data by several orders of magnitude. The differences may actually not be that dramatic, since experimental samples are in practice not always fully saturated as generally assumed. This paper demonstrates that this has enormous effects on permeability. A numerical study is conducted on...

Details of a complete methodology for porosimetry of virtual concrete have been described in a series of publications. This paper shortly sketches the main characteristics, whereupon it is indicated how a pore network model is designed based on data extracted from the virtual cement paste. This involves smoothing the main trunks as the main pore...

Thick laminates are increasingly present in large composites structures such as wind turbine blades. Different factors are suspected to be involved in the decreased static and dynamic performance of thick laminates. These include the effect of self-heating, the scaling effect, and the manufacturing process influence. The aim of this work is to...

The development of realistic numerical tools to efficiently model the response of concrete structures subjected to close-in detonations and high velocity impacts has been one of the major quests in defense research. Under these loading conditions, quasi-brittle materials undergo a multitude of failure (damage) mechanisms. Dynamic tensile failure...

In this contribution, dual and primal domain decomposition techniques are studied for the multiscale analysis of failure in quasi-brittle materials. The multiscale strategy essentially consists in decomposing the structure into a number of nonoverlapping domains and considering a refined spatial resolution where needed. In multiscale analysis of...

On the microlevel, cusps are formed during delamination crack growth under mode II loading conditions. In this work, two different approaches to simulate this process are presented. Firstly a cohesive zone method where cohesive segments are introduced between a pair of neighbouring elements when the traction between those elements exceeds the...

Some polymers are not only transparent and lightweight, but also impact and ballistic resistant. Designing and preparing such polymeric materials with a high impact?resistant performance is of importance to e.g. aviation, military and windscreen applications.

Numerical analysis of progressive damage in fiber-reinforced laminated composite plates is a challenge due to the presence of different, complex failure mechanisms and their mutual interaction. A meso-scopic progressive failure model is presented to simulate interacting damage mechanisms (matrix cracking and delamination) in laminated composite...

Macroscopic behavior of quasi-brittle materials is determined by their heterogeneous microstructure. Initiation and propagation of cracks are controlled by the randomness of the material and occur at different length scales (figure 1). Multi-scale approaches provide methodologies to obtain the mechanical behavior of a heterogeneous material from...

Advanced Finite Element codes provide the possibility to simulate high rate loading on concrete targets as ballistic impact and explosions. Although damage to RC structures due to these loadings can be simulated and detailed results can be obtained the predictions are still far from perfect. It is well known that the results strongly depend on...

The multiscale framework presented in [1, 2] is assessed in this contribution for a study of random heterogeneous materials. Results are compared to direct numerical simulations (DNS) and the sensitivity to user-defined parameters such as the domain decomposition type and initial coarse scale resolution is reported. The parallel performance of...

In this contribution, a finite element model for simulating coupled hydromechanic and electrokinetic flow in a multiphase domain is outlined. The model describes CO2 flow in a deformed, unsaturated geological formation and its associated streaming potential flow. The governing field equations are derived based on the averaging theory and solved...
