Mixed mode cohesive zone modelling and analysis of adhesively bonded composite T-joint under pull-out load
- 143 Downloads
The failure behaviour of three different configurations of adhesively bonded carbon fibre composite T-joints subjected to pull-out load is investigated. Finite element analysis is carried out on the carbon fibre composite T-joint models. A non-linear, contact target-based cohesive zone model with appropriate traction separation law is selected to simulate the pull-out test condition in FE package ANSYS®. The FE analysis results are in close agreement with available experimental results.
