Composite structures have been increasingly used in marine industries because of their high performance. During their service time, they may be exposed to extreme loading conditions such as underwater explosions. Both thermal loading effects on deformation and deformation effects on temperature need to be taken into consideration in the numerical simulations. Therefore, a thermomechanical analysis is conducted in a fully coupled manner, in order to investigate the thermal and mechanical responses of composite materials under explosion loads. In this study, the peridynamics theory is used for failure analyses of composite structures
