Virtual Crack Closure Technique (VCCT) in ANSYS

This presentation demonstrates how to use Virtual Crack Closure Technique (VCCT) to simulate the delamination of layers in a composite material.

Virtual Crack Closure Technique (VCCT) calculates energy-release rate, with the assumption that the energy needed to separate a surface is the same as the energy needed to close the same surface.

This presentation was given as part of the Fatigue & Fracture Using Finite Elements seminar on September 29, 2011 in Tarrytown, NY.  For further information please contact our office at (203) 758-2914.
