Hi everyone, I have a question about how the interlaminar stresses are calculated in shell element. I cant find it in the software documentation I have. The thin shell element model does not calculate the interlaminar stresses or shear stresses right? So there is a need to calculate it in another way, does it uses the equilibrium: xTension/dx + xyShear/dy + xzInterLamShear/dz = 0? What about in the free edge, does it assume zero there? What's the failure criteria used? Is it a quadratic considering both xz and yz InterLamShear or just linear? Sorry for so many questions but I need to justify this in my master thesis. Thank you very much, Best regards Gonçalo
Hello, I'm Kaustubh Garud ME design Student, Doing my ME project in Analysis of Adhesively bonded joint between composite laminates(static and Fatigue). Can we do that using hypermesh preprocessor and solver? Also, can we create cohesive elements or cohesive zone model using hypermesh ? Please help. Thank You
