Abstract

This paper presents the formulation and numerical implementation of a spectral scheme specially developed to simulate dynamic fracture events in unidirectional and cross-ply fiber-reinforced composites. The formulation is based on the spectral representation of the transversely isotropic elastodynamic relations between the traction stresses along the fracture plane and the resulting displacements. Example problems involving stationary or dynamically propagating cracks in fiber-reinforced composites are investigated and compared with reference solutions available in the literature and/or experimental observations.
