Abstract
A spring element model that takes into account the dynamic effects associated with fibre failure in composite materials is presented. The model is implemented in a parallel environment to allow a better performance in the prediction of the complex mechanisms associated with longitudinal tensile failure. The model is used to identify the changes in the stress fields around a broken fibre representing fibre failure as a dynamic phenomenon. In light of these changes in the stress fields, the cluste...
