Electric Field Distribution in Macro Fiber Composite Using Interdigitated Electrodes
In this paper, an attempt has been made to understand the electric field distribution in the Representative Volume Element (RVE) of the Macro Fiber Composite (MFC) using interdigitated electrodes IDEs. Since the magnitude of the electric field within the Representative Volume Element (RVE) using the IDEs is not uniform, an electrostatic study of the electric field behavior is carried out. An approximate RVE model with conventional electrodes, which is useful for the analytical solution, has been proposed instead of the RVE model with IDEs. Finally, the results obtained by the proposed analytical solution are compared to those obtained numericaly using the RVE model with IDEs.
