Abstrakt

The identification of the delamination propagation direction in three-dimensional structures with arbitrarily shaped fronts is needed in many applications. In the cohesive element framework, the propagation direction may be computed as the normal direction to a numerical damage isoline. The damage isoline tracking requires to exchange information between neighboring elements, thus post-processing global data, which is computationally expensive. This work presents a novel approach for the evaluation of the growth driving direction, only using local element information. The method can be directly implemented in a user-defined element subroutine and be evaluated at the execution time of the analysis. The presented formulation and its implementation in the commercial Finite Element code Abaqus is validated by comparison to the damage isoline shape rendering using global information.
