Comparing experimental fracture properties and micromechanical (or global-local/multiscale) finite element simulations

I am interested in developing a global-local finite element model (micro/macro) to simulate flexural testing of a composite material. Flexural loading will be applied on global model (macro) and crack propagation will be simulated in the local model (micro). I want to compare stress intensity factor or any other fracture property obtained from local model (micro) with that of experimental results.

I would appreciate if anyone could suggest some references/literature in this area. Any kind of suggestions would be great!

Is this what you want?

Dr. Hu,

Thank you for providing me the reference. This paper partially fits into my interest. I will read the paper in detail.

Regards,

Venkata
