Abstract

The objective of the current work is to perform a failure evaluation of fiber composite structures based on failure indices computed using the Hashin 3D failure criterion. The analysis employs 1D and 3D finite elements. 1D elements use higher-order structural theories from the Carrera Unified Formulation based on Lagrange expansions of the displacement field. The 3D model analysis exploits ABAQUS. Attention is paid to the free-edge effects, the mode of failure initiation - matrix or fiber tension, delamination -, and the loads at which first ply failure occurs. The results underline the paramount importance of out-of-plane stress components for accurate prediction and the computational efficiency of refined 1D models. In fact, 1D models lead from one to twofold reductions of the CPU time if compared to 3D models.
