XFEM Failure model implementation

Recommended Posts

Hi all

I would like to implement XFEM failure criteria into an RVE model. Could someone please send me the basic steps or the necessary output cards required for a successful implementation of the failure criteria?

Thank you !

Yes, i would like to analyze crack propagation in fiber and matrix of the composite structures (at the micro scale) by applying different loading conditions. I would like to proceed by defining different material property for fiber and matrix and observe how and where the crack is initiated and the path taken by it. I have alreadycreated a simple RVE (representative volume element) model.

Thank you very much but unfortunately I am not able to import it in Hyperworks 14. It shows "the file being opend for reading doesn't exist".

On the other hand, it perfectly opens in HW 13. But then i do not get any output results (for eg. the drop test). Could you please help me out with this?
