Composite materials, especially those fibre reinforced, thanks to their advantages, are be-
ing used in a growing number of industries. However, the complex structure of these materials
results in many analytical problems. One such problematic field is to model failure of a com-
posite, and especially the delamination process. The aim of this paper is to find a suitable
method of layer connection modelling with the ability to describe delamination phenomena.
A few chosen modelling parameters are investigated with respect to a parametric delamination
numerical model.
Keywords: fibre reinforced laminates (FRC), progressive crushing, cohesive modelling
