Abstract

This report describes the application of NPL-developed stress transfer models, of damage in laminated cross-ply composites subject to bending, to a web-based simulation system that is designed to offer the user an easy method of using models, that can assist in the design of damage resistant composites. The simulation allows the user to construct a virtual laminate, to visualize its appearance, and to observe damage development during loading that is governed by energy principles. In addition, quantitative design data are accessible as graphical output and in digital file-based form. The software system integrates FORTRAN software with a graphical web-based interface that includes the use of 3D visualisations based on virtual reality software routines.
