By considering the wide applications of composite materials, it is necessary to have a proper knowledge of dynamic behavior as well as static behavior reflecting the damage in composite materials. Strain rates have significant effects on dynamic behavior in composite materials when they are under dynamic loadings. In this thesis, a multiscale numerical approach with finite element code ABAQUS is developed to characterize failure criteria to express static and dynamic damage mechanisms of matrix cracking and interfacial debonding under uniaxial tensile loadings for composite materials. The random epoxy/glass composite material is investigated under three strain rates: quasi-static, intermediate and high, corresponding to 10-4, 1 and 200 s-1, respectively. A representative volume element (RVE) of a random glass fiber composite is employed to analyze microscale damage mechanisms of matrix cracking and interfacial debonding, while the associated damage variables are defined and applied in a mesoscale stiffness reduction law. The macroscopic response of the homogenized damage model is investigated using finite element analysis and validated through experiments. The random epoxy/glass composite specimens fail at a smaller strain; there is less matrix cracking but more interfacial debonding accumulated as the strain rate increases. The dynamic simulation results of stress strain response are compared with experimental tests carried out on composite specimens, and a respectable agreement between them under the low strain rate is observed. Finally, a case study of a random glass fiber composite plate containing a central hole subjected to tensile loading is performed to illustrate the applicability of the multiscale damage model.

This book presents novel methods for the simulation of damage evolution in aerospace composites that will assist in predicting damage onset and growth and thus foster less conservative designs which realize the promised economic benefits of composite materials. The presented integrated numerical/experimental methodologies are capable of taking into account the presence of damage and its evolution in composite structures from the early phases of the design (conceptual design) through to the detailed finite element method analysis and verification phase. The book is based on the GARTEUR Research Project AG-32, which ran from 2007 to 2012, and documents the main results of that project. In addition, the state of the art in European projects on damage evolution in composites is reviewed. While the high specific strength and stiffness of composite materials make them suitable for aerospace structures, their sensitivity to damage means that designing with composites is a challenging task. The new approaches described here will prove invaluable in meeting that challenge.
