Abstract

This study presents a peridynamic (PD) model to study the crashworthiness of a tapered laminate under compression. Along with a special explicit solution procedure to achieve the quasi-static response, a contact model is employed for load introduction from the rigid wall motion. Progressive damage is predicted by considering different bond types in the model. The validity of the approach is examined through comparison of the load vs displacement response and damage patterns with the experimental results. The PD simulations effectively capture different failure modes due to compressive loading until the laminate fully crashes. The predictions are consistent with the experimentally observations.
