In this paper, the recently-developed floating node method is extended for damage analysis of laminated composites with large deformations. Strong discontinuities including interfacial delamination and matrix cracks are explicitly represented by geometrically nonlinear kinematics. Interactions between these two kinds of failure patterns are...

The tensile constitutive behaviour of fibre-reinforced brittle materials can be extended to two or three dimensions by using the finite element method with crack models. The three approaches in this study include the smeared and discrete crack concepts and a multi-surface plasticity model. The tensile relation represents the crack normal stress...
