Abstract: A new collocation methodology is presented to predict failure and progressive damage behavior of composite plates in this paper. The present work deals with composite plates containing initial geometric imperfections and different boundary conditions under uniaxial in-plane compressive load. In the present study, the domain is discretized with Legendre-Gauss-Lobatto nodes and the approximation of displacement fields is performed by Legendre Basis Functions (LBFs). The onset of damage and damage evolution are p…
