- This paper aims to implement the Arlequin method to simulate the bearing failure in composite bolted joints. Arlequin coupling elements are established by introducing Lagrange multipliers to couple the 3D coarse elements and 3D refined elements. Refined elements are meshed one element each ply the same as the conventional model. Failure criteria and progressive damage approach are verified by comparing the conventional FE model with the experimental force-displacement curves from the literature. Coarse elements only have one element in the thickness to present properties of homogenized laminates. From the numerical results, the Arlequin FE model shows great feasibility and flexibility to get close to the conventional model, as well as saves almost half computational consumption.
