Abstract

Despite the development of many important concepts, the prediction of failure modes and strength of composite materials is still a challenge within the framework of the finite element method. This study presents a peridynamic modeling of laminated composites with arbitrary fiber orientation and stacking sequence in order to predict damage initiation and its growth under cyclic loading. Its capability is demonstrated by considering a unidirectional laminate with an edge crack under cyclic loading.
