Maggioli, Filippo (author)
Finite Element Methods (FEMs) are widely employed for damage simulation in composites, with the Cohesive Zone Model (CZM) being particularly favored for its robustness and scalability. Despite the CZM's mesh-dependent nature, the Discontinuous Galerkin Cohesive Zone Model (DG/CZM) formulation allows for relatively arbitrary crack propagation...

The concept of lightweight design is driving future aircraft to exploit all the available strength of materials and further reduce the weight of an aircraft leading to lower fuel consumption and more sustainable aviation. Current designs introduce rivets and bolts to join the structure and simultaneously create holes in the pristine material,...

Thermoplastic composites enable new manufacturing techniques such as conduction welding to make the aviation industry more sustainable, while at the same time, provide great benefits to cost-efficient high-volume production. One of the benefits of welding is that it reduces the amount of mechanical fasteners required. Fastener-free joining also...

According to experiments the fatigue damage behaviour of fibre reinforced polymers (FRP) experiences a load sequence effect. In this report the ability of the cohesive fatigue damage model of Dávila (2020) to simulate the behaviour after a load amplitude change is investigated. For this a double cantilever beam (DCB) with fictitious material...

A microscale numerical framework for modeling creep rupture in unidirectional composites under off-axis loading is presented, building on recent work on imposing off-axis loading on a representative volume element. Creep deformation of the thermoplastic polymer matrix is accounted for by means of the Eindhoven Glassy Polymer material model....

The complex failure mechanisms involved in failure of interfaces requires the use of an accurate description of the cohesive law. In recent years, there have been many developments to determine the full shape of the cohesive law. However, most of the existing cohesive zone models assume a simplified shape, such as bilinear, trapezoidal or...

In this work, a recently proposed high-cycle fatigue cohesive zone model, which covers crack initiation and propagation with limited input parameters, is embedded in a robust and efficient numerical framework for simulating progressive failure in composite laminates under fatigue loading. The fatigue cohesive zone model is enhanced with an...

This paper introduces a novel analytical approach aimed at predicting the growth of surface cracks in metallic pipes reinforced with Fibre-Reinforced Polymers (FRPs) subjected to cyclic bending and/or tension loads. The primary objective of this study is to develop a comprehensive analytical model that accounts for multiple factors...

Adhesive joints are frequently exposed to cyclic ageing conditions during their service life, which can have a substantial impact on the mechanical properties of both the adhesive and the substrates. The safe life philosophy, commonly employed in the design of bonded joints, underscores the importance of obtaining an accurate estimate of the...

This chapter discusses the mixed-mode loading of adhesive joints. The importance of mixed-mode loading is first introduced and then test methods commonly used to measure the mixed-mode fracture resistance of adhesive joints are presented and briefly discussed. The approaches to determine the fracture resistance are briefly reviewed and then...

Through the application of innovative production processes, thermoplastic composites might help the aviation industry become more sustainable. However, there is currently not much experimental understanding on the fatigue behaviour, and validated analysis methodologies on thermoplastic composites are rather limited. In this work, the fatigue...

Mudunuru, Nanditha (author)
Designing and modeling compatibilized polymer blends require accurate interface model. In addition, it is possible that crazing occurs during failure of the interfaces leading to large deformation prior to complete failure and therefore must be accounted for by the interface model.<br/><br/>A preliminary literature review showed that existing...

A numerical study on the feasibility of using patches of interface weakening or toughening material to trigger multiple delaminations toughening laminated composite structures against delamination is presented. The studies use an adaptive refinement formulation that uses cohesive elements to model delamination initiation and propagation. A DCB...

A numerical study on toughening laminated composite materials against delamination by initiating multiple interlaminar cracks is presented. Different configurations of interface toughening and weakening patches, that modify the interface properties at selected locations, are investigated as a way to trigger multiple delaminations. Both...

A novel efficient numerical formulation for the analysis of multiple fatigue-driven delamination cracks is presented. A cohesive zone model is used in combination with an Adaptive Refinement Scheme (ARS) and an Adaptive Floating Node Method (A-FNM) element that refine the model effectively during the analysis. Novel techniques are proposed to...

This paper evaluates the capabilities of the recently developed CF20 cohesive fatigue model, which can predict crack initiation as well as the rates of crack propagation by relying on intrinsic relationships between a stress-life diagram and its corresponding Paris law. The model is validated here using a partially reinforced double...

This study presents calibration and validation of a cohesive extended finite element model for fatigue crack propagation in ductile materials. The approach relies on a separation between plasticity around the crack tip and fatigue crack growth at the crack tip such that the influence of plasticity on fatigue driving forces is predicted. This...
