Modelling the effective elasto-plastic properties of unidirectional composites reinforced by fibre bundles under transverse tension and shear loading

Yang, Qing-Sheng; Qin, Qing Hua


The effect of fibre bundling on the effective transverse properties of unidirectional fibre composites has been investigated by way of finite element method and micromechanics models of fibre bundles. Based on the micromechanical model of single-fibre composites, plane strain models for composites reinforced by fibre bundles are presented. The effective elasto-plastic stress-strain behaviour was obtained numerically by analysing a boron/aluminium composite reinforced by three-fibre and...[Show more]
