Paper Title:
Simulation of the Mechanical Behaviour of Metal Matrix Composites
  Abstract

A model based on the geometry of the phases is introduced in order to investigate the mechanical properties of interpenetrating microstructures. In order to characterize the elastic and elastic-plastic properties of the composite a self consistent unit cell model is applied on a wide range of volume fractions for an Al/TiO2 composite. Besides the volume fraction a microstructural based parameter is used, the matricity, to describe the mutual circumvention of both phases. Computations are carried out for different temperatures and void volume fractions. In addition a conservative fracture criterion based on critical normal stresses is applied to derive realistic stress strain curves.
