REVIEW ARTICLES

Appl. Mech. Rev. 2002;55(2):89-106. doi:10.1115/1.1450763.

The present article is concerned with the application of the finite element method to the analysis of the onset of delamination growth in composites by means of the virtual crack closure technique (VCCT). The article reviews first the application of linear elastic fracture mechanics (LEFM) to the analysis of delamination, as well as the reasons why the VCC technique is the standard method of combining LEFM and the finite element method to predict onset of delamination growth. The article also reviews the different solutions proposed in the literature to deal with the oscillatory singularity associated with a crack between two dissimilar materials (as is the case for a delamination) and the practical details of the VCCT application in a general 3D analysis. Finally, the results of a numerical study of the mixed mode bending (MMB) interlaminar fracture test are shown. The study applies the concepts reviewed along the rest of this article and presents some practical recommendations for the analysis of a delamination front using finite elements. This review article includes 77 references.

This review article focuses on the problems related to numerical simulation of finite dimensional nonsmooth multibody mechanical systems. The rigid body dynamical case is examined here. This class of systems involves complementarity conditions and impact phenomena, which make its study and numerical analysis a difficult problem that cannot be solved by relying on known Ordinary Differential Equation (ODE) or Differential Algebraic Equation (DAE) integrators only. The main techniques, mathematical tools, and existing algorithms are reviewed. The article utilizes 233 references.

Volume of fluid interface reconstruction methods are used to resolve the interfaces between different materials in Eulerian and arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian calculations. Their accuracy is critical to the overall accuracy of the calculation since the interfaces define the interactions between adjacent materials. The methods have evolved since the early 1960s, and the early criticisms of them no longer hold. In this review article, the differences between the methods and their relative strengths are reviewed, and 38 reference sources are used.
