Modelling of multiple delaminations in shells using XFEM
Konferensbidrag (offentliggjort, men ej förlagsutgivet), 2013
A shell element which can account for multiple internal delaminations is presented. The shell kinematics is enriched based on the eXtended Finite Element Method (XFEM) and the element is verified against numerical tests.
The oral presentation will include three numerical examples and the kinematics will be explained in greater detail.
