Three dimensional (3D) textiles are finding their way into fibre reinforced composite applications, and for good reasons; they can eliminate the hazard of delamination and enable complex reinforcement shapes. There is therefore a need for engineering

The automotive industry is strongly dependent on efficient numerical tools in order to assess the crashworthiness of laminated composites. Unfortunately, to achieve predictive assessments of fracture in laminated composites one must resort to computationally costly, high-fidelity

This article addresses dynamic behaviour of fibre reinforced polymer composites in terms of a transversely isotropic viscoelastic-viscoplastic constitutive model established at the unidirectional ply level. The model captures the prelocalized response of the ply in terms

To introduce more fibre-reinforced polymers in cars, the automotive industry is strongly dependent on efficient modelling tools to predict the correct energy absorption in crash simulations. In this context, an adaptive modelling technique shows great potential.
