On the experimental modelling of delaminations in composite materials

C. Devivier, F. Pierron and M. R. Wisnom


Introduction

Introduction

  • Dramatic effects from very small impacts

  • Barely visible impact damage (BVID)caused by tool drops

  • BVID involves delaminations

  • Resulting damage pattern is complex


Introduction1

Introduction

  • More simple model

     samples with single delaminations

  • Test in cantilever bending using grid method by deflectometry

  • Issues with artificial delaminations

    • in literature  PTFE film works for mode I

    • in this paper  mode II studied

  • Objective:

    Create a non-destructive evaluation for delaminations


Dimensions and material

Dimensions and material

  • Simple cantilever beam with a point load

  • Samples: 250mm long, 50mm wide and 4mm thick

  • 32 plies in a quasi-isotropic layup : ([0 45 -45 90]4s)

  • Carbon fibre composite (IM7-8552)

Fe model

FE model

  • Elements

    • Type: 8-nodes linear elastic brick

    • Dimensions: 1 mm x 1 mm x 0.125 mm

    • Properties: UD material properties + orientation

  • Delaminations:

    • Coincident nodes disconnected

    • Surface contact introducedto prevent penetrations

Conclusion

Conclusion

  • Behaviour of artificial delaminations characterized by experimental method.

  • Created delamination:

    • Good agreement with FE for longitudinal strains,

    • Not so good for twist strains,

    • Inconclusive for transverse strains because of loading.

  • Real impact:

    • Indication on damage severity by measurement system


Future work

Future work

  • Test on samples with different types of inserts:

    • Double layer,

    • Different insert material,

    • Release agent.

  • Find a way to avoid the issue of deforming in plasticity the outer edges.

  • Link delamination behaviour with porosity.

  • Compare artificially introduced and real impacts in plates.
