Article Preview

A series of numerical meso-mechanical models for different kinds of particle (include spherical, cylindrical and discal) reinforced composites are developed to investigate the effect of microstructural parameters on the elastic properties of composites. In these models, an effective interface concept is adopted. Finite element models with prescribed and random parameters are automatically generated in ABAQUS PDE (Python Development Environment). In the simulative investigations, it is observed that the degree of particle clustering and particle’s shape have strong effects on the elastic mechanical properties of composites.
