Abstract

In this study, utilizing relatively refined meshes, we present a novel Cohesive Zone Model (CZM) to predict delamination propagation precisely and reliably in composite laminates under static loads. This finite element analysis consists to define elements at the interface between two composite plates and an interface damage law. This analysis was conducted using ABAQUS software, where we employed the guidelines outlined in the ASTM D5528 standard for composite Double Cantilever Beam (DCB) testing to numerically simulate the propagation of delamination under pure mode 1 conditions. We have compared the outcomes of this numerical model with existing literature and engaged in a discussion regarding their validity.
