Paper Title:
Micromechanical Modeling of the Effect of Progressive Damage on the Tensile Behavior in Fiber-Reinforced Polymer Composites
  Abstract

In this article a methodology based upon micromechanical analysis of multiple damage events is developed to predict stress-strain response and failure behavior of fiber-reinforced polymers composites under tensile loading, by considering the effect of variations in fiber strength and local shear failure of the matrix. A simulation scheme coupled with Monte-Carlo method including these failure mechanisms is proposed to investigate failure process and determine ultimate strength of the composites. It is shown that the size dependence of composite ultimate strength is dominated by fiber strength statistics and stress distribution due to progressive microdamage.
