Predicting the initiation of delamination is essential for the design of composite structures, because delamination is a major failure mode of layered composites. The according delamination onset criteria can be evaluated on the basis of stress-strength relations, which requires an accurate representation of the through-the-thickness stress distribution, which is delicate for thin shell-like structures. Thus, in this paper, a solid-shell finite element is utilized, which allows for incorporating a fully three-dimensional, anisotropic, micromechanically motivated material model, still being suited for application to thin structures. Moreover, locking phenomena are cured by using both the EAS and the ANS concept, and numerical efficiency is ensured through reduced integration.
