A computational simulation of fracture behaviour in auxetic cellular structure, subjected to multiaxial loading is presented in this paper. A fracture behaviour of the 3D (three-dimensional) chiral auxetic structure under multiaxial loading conditions was studied. The computational models were used to study the geometry effect of the unit cell on the Poisson’s ratio and fracture behaviour of the analysed chiral auxetic structure. A 3D computational model was built using FEM-code LS DYNA. The discrete computational model of chiral auxetic structure was built using beam finite elements. The lattice model of the analysed auxetic structure was positioned between rigid plates and assembled in a way to simulate a hydro-compression loading conditions. Between the contacting surfaces interactions in normal (contact) and tangential direction (friction) with the node-to-surface approach were simulated. A developed computational model offers insight in the fracture behaviour of considered auxetic cellular structure and helps to better understanding their crushing behaviour under impact multiaxial loading.
