Micromechanical Model of a Composite

Application ID: 68211


In this example, a simplified micromechanical model of a unit cell with periodic boundary conditions is analyzed. The homogenized elastic and thermal properties of a composite material are computed based on individual properties of fiber and matrix. A comparison of numerical values are made against values obtained from the Rule of Mixture.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
