I'm performing a simulation of a crash test on carbon fiber Structure using ansys explicit analysys module and ACP(pre); I have some problem with the process. I recap shortly what I've done:
- Creating model of Carbon Fiber structure with ACP(pre) and share shell surface data in explicit analysys. The Material model has got density, orthotropic elasticity, orthotropic stress limit, Tsai-Wu constants. The Stress limit constants cames from previous material caraterization with static experimental tests.
- Set up simulation like low speed simulation(7m/s) with initial velocity condition of a rigid impact plate and fixed the base of the carbon fiber structure.
The problem now is:
- When i disable material failure model I have a perfect elastic simulation with no problem o element distorsion.
- When I use material failure model i have large distorsion of elements that incame in failure. I don't know if it is normal or is something like hourglassing mode. This preclude all the late results of simulation because it deforming the grid.
- If i include Erosion: with geometric strain limit erosion(1,5) i obtain a stable simulation with bad results, the system desn't dissipate the Kinetic energy of the plate, it's far from reality; with failure material erosion I obtain somethings similar but i can't complete the simulation because everytime one element detached from the structure became so big and create problem.
For now I disable the Energy error because it stops me every time, when I'll find a solution I'll come back in Energy controlling. I have quad dominant shell mesh: I try to reduce it's dimension (10mm-->6mm) and try to reduce the time steps safety factor without good results. How can I solve this problem?

Someone have an idea for stabilize shell element distorsion post failure? I have this problem yet.
If I switch to solid element for include fracture softening how i can model solid layered structure without using ACP Pre/Post that can't transfer solid data to explicit dynamic module.

I am doing a car crash test and am having the same thing (car going through the wall) with same ACP (or Layered section)- LS Dyna EXplicit dynamics.nIf you have anything to help me with please suggest.n
