MICROMECHANICAL MODELING OF THE FRACTURE PROCESS IN ADVANCED METAL SANDWICH PLATES USING FFT-BASED HOMOGENIZATION
Felix BödekerGrand Ballroom A
The fracture behavior of the complex core material of Hybrix sandwich plates was investigated by micromechanical modeling using FFT-based homogenization. A method for generating virtual Representative Volume Elements (RVEs) based on experimental observations was developed and the homogenization results were compared to experiments in peel mode I. The applicability of micromechanical simulations to the optimization of fracture properties of the Hybrix core is discussed.
