Recent advancements in computational methods has led to improvements in the computational modeling of tensile failure of composite laminates. Models for compressive failure however, have not yet reached the same level of maturity. Particularly in the case of fiber kinking there is a need for improved modeling techniques. Fiber kinking occurs...
