Numerical investigations on a yarn structure at the microscale towards scale transition
TypeArticles dans des revues avec comité de lecture
Since the beginning of the last decade, few examples of multifilament models for dry fabrics have been presented in literature. This work deals with the simulation of a single yarn subjected to transverse impact. Inspired by the models previously developed by other authors, a revisited form of Discrete Element Method has been adopted to perform microscopic analyses in a more efficient computational environment. Transverse impact analysis onto a single KEVLAR KM2 yarn has been performed using this approach. Truss elements have been adopted to discretize yarn filaments instead of heavy computational 3D finite elements. A good agreement with literature results has been achieved with an important reduction of computational resource. In the end, a proposed scale transition is discussed.

A promising way to model damage in composite and dry fabrics using a Discrete Element Method (DEM) DAU, Frédéric; MAHEO, Laurent; LE, Ba Danh; GIRARDOT, Jérémie (ASTM, 2014)A promising way to model fracture mechanics with the use of an original Discrete Element Method (DEM) is proposed. After proving the ability of the method to capture kinetic damage induced by cracking phenomena in brittle ...
JEBAHI, Mohamed; DAU, Frédéric; CHARLES, Jean-Luc; IORDANOFF, Ivan (Springer, 2014)Multiscale modeling aims to solve problems at the engineering (macro) scale while considering the complexity of the microstructure with minimum cost. Generally, two scales are considered in multiscale modeling: small scale, ...

The Arlequin approach provides a flexible framework and presents several advantages in ...
JEBAHI, Mohamed; ANDRÉ, Damien; DAU, Frédéric; CHARLES, Jean-Luc; IORDANOFF, Ivan (Elsevier, 2013)The indentation response of glasses can be classified under three headings: normal, anomalous and intermediate, depending on the deformation mechanism and the cracking response. Silica glass, as a typical anomalous glass, ...
METOUI, Sondes; PRULIERE, Etienne; AMMAR, Amine; DAU, Frédéric; IORDANOFF, Ivan (Wiley, 2014)The use of cohesive zone models is an efficient way to treat the damage, especially when the crack path is known a priori. This is the case in the modeling of delamination in composite laminates. However, the simulations ...
