Three-dimensional thermoelastic properties of general composite laminates
out of 5 stars
06 Dec 2018 | Contributor(s):: Orzuri Rique, Johnathan Goodsell, Wenbin Yu, Byron Pipes
This paper presents a hybrid rule of mixtures for calculating the complete set of effective three-dimensional thermoelastic properties of composite laminate when it is approximated as an equivalent, homogeneous, anisotropic solid. The laminate can be made of generally anisotropic layers with...
Is it possible to homogenize aperiodic/partially periodic structures using 3D FEA?
Closed | Responses: 1
apart from MSG? is there any alternate way to predict effective properties using 3D FEA for aperiodic/ partially structures such as honeycomb core, circular fiber...
Two-step homogenization of textile composites using mechanics of structure genome
04 Apr 2017 | Contributor(s):: Xin Liu, Khizar Rouf, Bo Peng, Wenbin Yu
Mechanics of structure genome is extended to provide a novel two-step homogenization approach to predicting the effective properties of textile composites. The first homogenization step (microhomogenization) deals with determining the effective properties of tows (yarns) from fiber and matrix...
Tet and Hex element type results variation
