Transverse moduli for composite

I'm currently working on modeling 3 phases composites material. However, I'm having hard time on finding the transverse modulus as it's different from analytical results. I've been using Mori-Tanaka approach to determine the stiffness moduli. Does anyone know how to obtain a correct values for the transverse moduli?

Cohesive behaviour for Interaction in Abaqus Explicit at the interface of materials

Hi,
I am working on effects of Blast Loading in sandwich composites using Abaqus. I want to incorporate Cohesive behaviour at the interface of the two materials in the sandwich composite structure i am analysing.

Umat-Help-Progressive Damage modeling

Hiii All,

 I am writing an umat for Progressive Damage modeling for 3d Composites.

  when I am compiling my Umat i got an error which says

The executable /raid/software/64/abaqus/6.8-1/exec/standard.exe
aborted with system error "Illegal floating point operation" (signal 8).

I checked out my code many times but i dont find any wrong,Can any one please help me out to resolve this issue.

If some one needs my subroutine file i can send it to them provided te email address

Help in abaqus modelling

Hi all,

 I am currently working on my Masters thesis which is the analysis of sandwich structures subjected to blast loading using Abaqus. Can someone suggest some references which would  explain me how to apply blast loading using abaqus. 

There is an example problem of submarine in the abaqus user's manual which includes the blast loading. But they've only given the inp file for that. 

 

So can someone also tell me how to generate .cae file from .inp file in abaqus.

 

Best Regards,

First ply failure of composite panels using ABAQUS

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

I am using ABAQUS Software for analysis of laminated composite plates (279X279X2.16) and (0/90)4s having 16 plies; trying to perform Buckling and Post buckling analysis using Static Rik’s algorithm.

Firstly, Eigen value analysis is performed in step one, and thus bulking load is predicated.Then Eigen values are incorporated in Static Rik’s Non-linear analysis for imperfection (1% of first Eigen mode,0.05% of second Eigen mode, 0.025% of third mode and 0.025% of forth mode)using edit keywords method.

Fracture Mechanics vs. Damage Mechanics

I was wondering what are the advantages of damage mechanics and fracture mechanics over each other? Specially in order to model the delamination phenomenon.
