Recently, applications of integrated large composite structures have been attempted to many structures of vehicles. To improve the cost performance and reliability of the integrated composite structures, it is necessary to judge structural integrity of the composite structures. For the judgement, we need fracture simulation techniques for composite structures. Many researches oil the fracture simulation method using FEM have been reported by now. Most of the researches carried out simulations considering only matrix cracking and fiber breaking as fracture modes, and did not consider delamination. Several papers have reported the delamination simulation, but all these reports require three-dimensional elements or quasi three- dimensional elements for FEM analysis. Among fracture mechanisms of composite laminates, delamination is the most important factor because it causes stiffness degradation in composite structures. It is known that onset and propagation of delamination are dominated by the strain energy release rate and interfacial moment. In this study, laminated composite has been described by using 3 dimensional finite elements. Then impact behavior of the laminated composite is simulated using FEM(ABAQUS/Explicit) with progressive failure mechanism. These results are compared with experimental results.
