Abstract:

The main objective of this project was the development of an innovative computer program with advanced capabilities for providing means for establishing reliable quantitative failure initiation criteria for laminated composites and adhesively bonded joints. The existing software product Stress Check, which is based on the p- and hp-version of the finite element method and has a-posteriori error estimation capabilities, provided the framework for this development.
