A Statistical Constitutive Model for the Strength of Brittle Fiber at Different Strain Rates

Abstract:

Article Preview

A statistical constitutive model, which takes account the effect of strain rate, was presented to describe the stress-strain relationship of brittle fiber bundles. To verify its reliability, tensile tests on two kinds of brittle fibers: glass fiber and SiC fiber, were carried out at different strain rates, and the stress-strain curves were obtained. It was found that the modulus E, the strength and the fracture strain of these fiber bundles all increase with increasing strain rate. The simulated stress-strain curves, derived from the constitutive model, fit the tested results well, which indicates that the model is valid and reliable.
