Abstract This study proposed a method for progressive failure analysis to investigate the failure modes of 35 MPa Type III composite pressure vessels during hydraulic burst tests. Representative volume elements (RVEs) were introduced, and the degraded elastic parameters of composite, which include fibre and matrix failure modes, were calculated by the finite element analysis (FEA) method to obtain the macroscopic stiffness degradation parameters. The Puck failure criterion was adopted, and the effective elastic parameters calculated from RVEs was introduced by the UDSLFD subroutine to simulate the multiscale progressive damage of composite layers during hydraulic burst test. Combined with acoustic emission detection, composite microscopic photos and hydraulic burst test, the burst pressure and failure modes of the vessels were analysed. The results showed that meso-macroscopic finite element models could effectively predict the progressive damage of composite pressure vessel, such as matrix crack, interlaminar failure and fiber fracture under internal pressure loading. Finally, the predicted burst pressure was about 5.4% average difference of the actual experimental results. Besides, cylinder section of the vessels was the predicted blasting position, which was close to the actual tests. Thus, the proposed method can provide theoretical reference for the design and optimisation of composite pressure vessels.

Abstract The void growth and fiber volume fraction in filament winding composites is critical to the mechanical performance of composite structures. In this paper, a comprehensive prediction model for void growth and fiber volume fraction is developed based on various time-dependent manufacturing characteristics in the filament winding process. This prediction model is basically decoupled into three sub-models: a diffusion-controlled void growth sub-model, a thermo-chemical sub-model and a resin...

Abstract In the present study, a new interface model based on continuum damage mechanics (CDM) is developed to investigate the fiber-matrix interfacial debonding in the composite material. This model differs from Voronoi cell finite element and cohesive zone element method. To this purpose, a 2D classical elasticity formulation with non-interactive strength-based criteria and complex variable method with non-interactive energy-based criteria are applied for the analysis of the debond onset and p...

Abstract The aim of this study is to propose methods for dome thickness distribution and the charge pressure of the liner for a 70MPa type IV hydrogen storage vessel. The netting theory was employed to design the lay-up of the cylindrical section. For precise prediction of the dome thickness, a cubic spline function was utilized. Variable polar radii were used to reduce the fiber stacking and thickness accumulation near polar openings. To evaluate the designed lay-up, various failure criteria we...

This paper aims to characterize the damage mechanisms of 70 MPa Type IV hydrogen composite pressure vessels using the acoustic emission (AE) method. First, AE signals were captured during the 0–105 MPa and 0–158 MPa hydraulic tests of two vessels using multi-step loading method. Second, the AE feature parameters in time-domain and frequency-domain such as amplitude, frequency, and energy are studied. A multi-parameter statistical analysis (MPSA) method based on empirical mode decomposition (EMD)...

Abstract This paper examines the effectiveness of periodic boundary conditions (PBCs), when applied to heterogeneous representative volume elements (RVEs) subjected to high strain-rate loading conditions. Even for a periodic multi-phase microstructure, the local stress and strain responses in the RVE under conditions of high strain-rate is not periodic. Stress waves propagate in the microstructure and interact with heterogeneities, resulting in reflection and transmission at the interfaces. To m...

EasyPBC is an ABAQUS CAE plugin developed to estimate the homogenised effective elastic properties of user created periodic representative volume element (RVE), all within ABAQUS without the need to use third-party software. The plugin automatically applies the concepts of the periodic RVE homogenisation method in the software’s user interface by categorising, creating, and linking sets necessary for achieving deformable periodic boundary surfaces, which can distort and no longer remain plane. A...

Abstract In this paper a novel design approach was proposed for determining the optimal winding parameters of composite pressure vessels based on non-geodesic trajectories. With the aid of the differential theory and winding principles, the non-geodesic trajectories were derived for various tangent points. The obtained non-geodesics for composite pressure vessels were simulated using MATLAB to verify the validity of the trajectory design. The influence of the number of the tangent points and the...

Micromechanics based models are used for predicting the effective mechanical properties of reinforced polymer matrix composites. This paper reviews micromechanics based models for fiber reinforced polymer composites starting with the bounds established by Voigt and Reuss models, Hashin-Shtrikman model and then on to well-known micromechanics based models like Mori-Tanaka model, Self-consistent model and Differential scheme based models. The main objective is to critically review the areas in whi...

Abstract One of the most important issues about the behaviour of composite materials subjected different loading conditions is the initiation and propagation of various damage modes, which have significant effects on their application. In the present study, the cohesive zone model (CZM), as well as extended finite element method (XFEM) are used in the form of a new numerical method to study the effects of initiation and propagation of damage modes including fiber-matrix debonding and matrix crac...

Abstract The present study proposes a method to predict the burst pressures (BPs) of type III filament winding carbon fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP) composite pressure vessels considering the inhomogeneity of carbon fiber packing through experimental work and simplified mechanical models reflecting the evolution of local damage in the CFRP layers. Vessels that had different carbon fiber volume fractions (Vfs) were prepared and tested to measure their BPs. The inhomogeneity of carbon fiber packi...
