Benchmark d'un modèle layer wise de multicouches et implémentation du modèle dans Abaqus

Abstract : In this document, the behaviour of laminated composite is investigated using several high order or layer wise finite element calculations. A layer wise model and its devoted finite element on C° eight-node layer wise finite element have been originally and specifically developed for an interlaminar stresses analysis in a free edge problem or for a bonding study. This model is the core of the present comparisons. It is based on a typical layer wise model that considers the laminate by a superposition of Reissner plates coupled by interfacial stresses. This element consists of 5n degrees of freedom per node (n is the layer number) and is able to predict interlaminar stresses. These out-of-plane stresses are deduced directly from constitutive equations without post-processing works. The previous papers dealt with the accuracy of these estimated interface stresses. However, the model not only permits to compute displacements and usual deflections but also to compute stresses through the layer thicknesses with or without postprocess. In the present paper, the accuracy and the validity of these computed displacements and stresses have also been established on a large number of important benchmarks of bending examples for composites and sandwich plates. The aim of this research is also to better positioning and promoting of this stress approach deriving from the works of Pagano, which was not generally studied in this way. This model has also been implemented into the ABAQUS finite-element program through a User-Element subroutine interface. To demonstrate the effectiveness of the model and the finite element code, examples which include isotropic and anisotropic plates, the problem of the perforated plate are calculated
