Springer; 2015th Edition
This Numerical Simulation of Mechanical Behavior of Composite Materials, 2015th Edition (PDF) book is written for graduate engineering students who are interested in expanding their understanding of the behavior of composite structures.
This ebook provides readers with a novel mechanical formulation that can tackle the nonlinear orthotropic behavior of composite materials. In addition to this, it investigates other formulations, which enables us to assess the behavior of composite materials by analyzing the composition of their individual components, thereby creating a new composite material. In a similar vein, two multiple-scale homogenization methods are provided, one of which is based on the analytical study of the cells (Ad-hoc homogenization), and the other, which is more common, is based on the finite element procedure, which is applied in both the micro-scale (sub-scale) and the macro-scale. Both of these methods are described below (upper-scale). In this ebook, you will also find a very general formulation that simulates the mechanical behavior of traditional composite structures (such as plywood, reinforced concrete, masonry, and so on). In addition, you will learn about new composite materials that are reinforced with short and long fibers, nanotubes, and so on.
The typical phenomena that take place in composite materials have also been characterized in this work. These include fiber-matrix debonding, local buckling of fibers, and the coupling of this buckling with the overall buckling of the structure. Last but not least, this ebook provides a number of numerical examples that evaluate the features and capabilities of the general model that has been formulated.
Please be aware that the offering only comes with the PDF version of the ebook titled “Numerical Simulation of Mechanical Behavior of Composite Materials, 2015th Edition.” There are no access codes contained within.
