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...
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...
