Tutorial 79: Stress Analysis of Composite T-beam

Tutorial by Armin Yousefi Kanani

Composite fracture occurs at three modes, depending on three loading scenarios. Mode I is an opening or tensile mode, mode II fractures consist of a sliding or shear effect and mode III fractures occur due to a tearing or shear loading effect. This report will only be looking at fracture modes of type I and II. In practical occurrences of material fracture caused by cracking, especially in metals, mode I type of fracture is predominantly present.
 Set up properties for delaminating interfaces inside engineering data
 define delaminating interfaces inside ACP
 Use predefined interfaces from ACP inside Mechanical
 Alternatively use contact definitions with cohesive zone material inside Mechanical
 Boundary conditions and analysis settings
 Postprocessing
