Abstract

The aim of present work is to predict the effect of fiber volume fraction and different damage mechanisms such as fiber breakage, fiber-matrix debond and matrix cracks on the effective properties of the unidirectional fiber-reinforced composites based on a micromechanical analysis. The material properties are calculated using a Finite element method based numerical approach using a three-dimensional micromechanical representative volume element (RVE). The RVE is modeled by considering a square packing array of fibers with circular cross-section. The periodic boundary conditions are applied on the RVE to calculate elastic properties of composite.
