Abstract

A modified Hashin failure model is developed to characterize different failure modes related to high-velocity impact of composite laminates. Hashin's compressive fiber failure mode has been extended to consider the shear stress effect. Several micromechanics-based degradation rules are developed and applied to the stress and material property calculations according to different failure modes after the corresponding failure criterion is satisfied. This model has been implemented into a recently developed micromechanics model. Computational results show that this model is able to address shear failure, delamination, and tearing failure observed in the high-velocity impact of composite laminates.
