RVE Based Numerical Evaluation on Effective Mechanical Properties of Composite with Randomly Distributed Multi-Phase Inclusions
The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the effective mechanical properties of composite ceramic with randomly distributed multi-phase inclusions. The RVE finite element subcell technique based on numerical homogenization theory is used to separate the multi-phase composite into the layered unit cell models which are generated by a modified random sequential adsorption algorithm (RSA). The numerical results are also compared and verified with experiment data.
