Abstract

In this paper an experimental analysis of the failure of a single layer woven fabric composite 2.5 D  G1151/ Resin Epoxy through a tensile tests at 0°, 45° and 90° is investigated. In addition a FE simulation of failure were elaborated through multiscale modeling method, micro then meso then macro scale. The microscale simulation was elaborated on ABAQUS standard simulation of a 3D unit cell of random fibers distribution of a single yarn. The meso scale simulation developed on MATLAB. The meso approach based to the extraction of the behavior of representative volume elementary (RVE) of the 2.5 D woven composite. The macroscale simulation was elaborated on ABAQUS standard simulation. With reference to the numerical and experimental study, the results shows a good agreement. The present investigation is an important preliminary study in process forming of single woven carbon 2.5 D composite.
