Article
We present a model for fluid-driven propagation of discrete fractures in poroelastic continua. The developed model incorporates skin (surface permeability) and fluid slip effects at the fracture walls, which are especially relevant for subsurface applications. The development of a fracture propagation criterion requires adequate incorporation of al...
Article
Decohesion processes involved in debonding between yarns and matrix or sliding between contacting yarns constitute important failure mechanisms in woven composites. The geometry of the yarn architecture however makes it difficult to avoid interpenetrations between neighboring yarns in their geometrical description. This motivated recent works using...

Computational multiscale methods are highly sophisticated numerical approaches to predict the constitutive response of heterogeneous materials from their underlying microstructures. However, the quality of the prediction intrinsically relies on an accurate representation of the microscale morphology and its individual constituents, which makes thes...

When analysing complex structures with advanced damage or material models, it is important to use a robust solution method in order to trace the full equilibrium path. In light of this, we propose a new path-following solver based on the integral of the rate of dissipation in each material point, for solving problems exhibiting large energy dissipa...

In this paper, the influence of the internal pressure on the damage resistance of composite overwrapped pressure vessels due to contact loading is studied experimentally. Pressure vessels with different internal pressures are loaded quasi-statically using an indenter. The damage is evaluated by use of computed tomography scans. Subsequently, the re...

In order to model prominent failure modes experienced by multi-layered composites, a fine through-thickness discretisation is needed. If the structure also has large in-plane dimensions, the computational cost of the model becomes large. In light of this, we propose an adaptive isogeometric continuum shell element for the analysis of multi-layered...

This paper investigates the potential of the discrete element method to simulate the physics of particle bed-based additive manufacturing. This method naturally captures the discrete aspects of additive manufacturing processes, such as material addition. The proposed discrete element framework uses constitutive relations for loose powder, bonding k...
Article
We develop a model which couples the flow in a discrete fracture to a deformable porous medium. To account for the discrete representation of the fracture, a dimensionally-reduced fluid flow model is proposed. The fluid flow model incorporates both a reduced permeability of the fracture walls due to the skin effect, and a slip of fluid flowing alon...

A combined experimental-numerical method is proposed to predict the mechanical behavior of composite overwrapped pressure vessels under impact conditions. Material characterization tests are conducted on filament-wound samples to determine the key material parameters, whilst taking into account manufacturing defects due to the production process. T...

Polyvinilidene fluoride (PVDF) is a semi-crystalline polymer with high chemical resistance and good gas barrier properties; because of these qualities, it is often adopted in load-bearing applications in the Oil&Gas sector. In the present work, an accelerated testing protocol is presented, where creep rupture is predicted, coupling a model for the...
Article
Composite overwrapped pressure vessels are typically used to store gases such as hydrogen under high pressure. Internal damage due to an impact may reduce the strength of the vessel, through which the internal pressure at failure, the so-called burst pressure, may drop significantly. Advanced material models can be used to predict to what extend th...

In the context of additive manufacturing (AM) and 3D Printing, vat photopolymerization is an established technique in which photopolymer is selectively solidified to form a near-net-shape part. Photopolymerization-based AM is increasingly being adopted by the high-tech industry, but the technology still faces several challenges in terms of consiste...

In order to investigate the residual strength of composite overwrapped pressure vessels subjected to impact loads, an extensive experimental study has been performed. The vessels are loaded up to different mechanical work levels (quasi-static) or with various impact energies (dynamic). After loading, the emerged damage in the pressure vessel is exa...

We develop a staggered finite element procedure for the coupling of a free viscous flow with a deformable porous medium, in which interface phenomena related to the skin effect can be incorporated. The basis of the developed simulation procedure is the coupled Stokes-Biot model, which is supplemented with interface conditions to mimic interface-rel...

Decohesion is an important failure mechanism in complex 3D woven composites. It includes both debonding between reinforcing yarns and matrix, and debonding/sliding between contacting yarns in complex woven architectures.
