Paper Title:
Microstructure Reconstruction and Numerical Simulation of Deformation in Particle-Reinforced Composites
  Abstract

A new methodology of computer simulation is proposed to perform finite element (FE) calculations of uniaxial tensile deformation on the three-dimensional (3D) complex microstructures, through its application to the microstructure of aluminum matrix containing randomly distributed and oriented SiC particles of highly variable and angular geometry. Compared with the simplified microstructure model, the complex microstructure model shows significant differences in terms of micromechanical fields and macroscopic uniaxial deformation. The results reveal that a quantitative and convenient reconstruction of microstructure of particulate composites is crucial for both the prediction and design of material properties.
