Micromechanical Model of a Triply-Periodic-Minimal-Surface-Based Composite

Application ID: 116521

In this example, the homogenized elastic and thermal properties of a composite material based on a triply periodic minimal surface (TPMS) are computed.

A gyroid TPMS-based unit cell is subjected to periodic boundary conditions to get the homogenized material properties. The effects of negative Poisson's ratio and different volume fractions on the homogenized properties are analyzed.

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