Microstructure Reconstruct of Continuous Fiber Bundles by Image Analysis


Article Preview

The precise characterization of the microstructure of bundle is essential for an accurate determination of their properties and behavior. This paper presents a study on the microstructure of continuous fiber bundles by Serial Sectioning Method. Bundle is firstly cured by resin to keep the fiber spatial configuration in the bundle. A series of cross-section images vertical to the bundle direction are captured and polished enough to take digital photographs by the Charge-coupled Device (CCD) microscope. A 3D solid microstructure of the bundle is implemented by linking the correspondent circle for separate fiber in the 3D solid software Pro/E. Reconstructed bundle structure truly represents the spatial configuration of the fibers in the bundle.
