An orthotropic elasto-plastic damage material model (OEPDMM) suitable for impact analysis of composite materials has been developed through a joint research project funded by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The developed material model has been implemented into LS-DYNA®, a commercial finite element program. The material model is modular comprising of deformation, damage and failure sub-models.
