Abstract

This work presents contact problems of laminated structures via the Carrera Unified Formulation (CUF). The modeling approach makes use of higher-order 1D elements accounting for transverse shear and stretching. The current work considers normal, frictionless contact based on a node-to-node formulation, and the penalty approach to enforce the contact constraints. Numerical assessments compare classical beam theories, higher-order CUF, and 3D finite element models regarding solution accuracy, computational size, and time required for the analysis. The results show the validity of Layer-Wise CUF models to capture both global and local deformations accurately, which is a shortcoming of classical beam theories, and require at least an order of magnitude fewer degrees of freedom and computational time than a full 3D finite element analysis. Particularly relevant are the accurate distributions of transverse shear stress and stretching along the thickness in the perspective of failure analyses.
