Puck criteria for Nastran


By chance, does any one knows how to obtain Puck parameters for carbon epoxy lamina especially

slope P12c of fracture envelop
slope P12T of fracture envelop
slope P23c of fracture envelop
slope P23T of fracture envelop

and other parameters as can be seen in Patran while defining failure criteria

Advance thanks for your help
and happy new year

sincerely yours,

RE: Puck criteria for Nastran

Do you have Puck's papers defining the failure criteria?

RE: Puck criteria for Nastran

The following reference lists some typical values.

Knops, M. (2008). Analysis of Failure in Fiber Polymer Laminates: The Theory of Alfred Puck. Heidelberg: Springer-Verlag.
