Composite Stiffness Property Prediction
07 Aug 2017
Micromechanical models for the composite axial tensile, transverse tensile, and axial shear are combined into one tool with the objective of comparing their effectiveness as property prediction methods. Rule of mixtures models (ROM) and the composite cylinder model (CCM) results for...

Computational evaluation of effective stress relaxation behavior of polymer composites
11 Jul 2017
This paper presents a micromechanics model to characterize the effective stress relaxationstiffness of polymer composites. The linear viscoelastic behavior of polymer material wasmodeled by hereditary integral. The proposed model was established based on thevariational asymptotic method for unit...
MUL2-UC Beam modeling of periodically heterogeneous composites
13 Jun 2017
The micromechanics code MUL2-UC is developed to work as an efficient and high-fidelity tool for the computation of the effective stiffness matrix and the recovering of the local fields of periodically heterogeneous composite structures. The main novelty is that higher-order beam theories are...

Dear All, For those ANSYS users, please check the attached skill of using surface element, “Surface_Effect_Elements.pdf”, to apply the surface tangent traction. It works well for homogenization simulations, and also for some beams structure validations. This attached zip file also...
Structure Genome: Fill the Gap between Materials Genome and Structural Analysis
29 Nov 2014 | Publications
A new concept, Structure Genome (SG), is proposed to fill the gap between materials genome and structural analysis. SG acts as the basic building block of the structure connecting materials to structures and the mechanics of SG governs the necessary information to link materials genome and...
