Abstract
A multiscale model based bridge theory was proposed for the progressive damage analysis of carbon/epoxy laminates under couple laser and mechanical loading. The ablation model was adopted to calculate ablation temperature changing and ablation surface degradation. The polynomial strengthening model of matrix was used to improve bridging model for reducing parameter input. Thermal-mechanical analyses of the composite plate were performed using the ABAQUS/explicit program with the developed model implemented in the VUMAT. The simulation results showed that this model could be used to proclaim the mesoscale damage mechanism of composite laminates under coupled loading.
