An extrinsic interface developed in an equilibrium based finite element formulation

Risultato della ricerca: Conference articlepeer review


The phenomenon of delamination in composite material is studied in the framework of hybrid equilibrium based formulation with extrinsic cohesive zone model. The hybrid equilibrium formulation is a stress based approaches defined in the class of statically admissible solutions. The formulation is based on the nine-node triangular element with quadratic stress field which implicitly satisfy the homogeneous equilibrium equations. The inter-element equilibrium condition and the boundary equilibrium condition are imposed by considering independent side displacement fields as interfacial Lagrangian variable, in a classical hybrid formulation. The hybrid equilibrium element formulation is coupled with an extrinsic interface, for which the interfacial separation is zero for a sound interface. The extrinsic interface is defined as a rigid-damage cohesive zone model (CZM) in the rigorous thermodynamic framework of damage mechanics and is defined as embedded interface at the hybrid equilibrium element sides.
