A framework to obtain the failure surface of a unidirectional composite which can be used as an input for Generalized Tabulated Failure Criterion in MAT_213 – an orthotropic elasto-plastic material model implemented in LS-DYNA, a commercial finite element program, is discussed in this research. A finite element model consisting of the fiber and the matrix is generated using the Virtual Testing Software System (VTSS) developed at Arizona State University (ASU). The framework is illustrated using the T800-F3900 unidirectional composite material manufactured by Toray Composites.
