A Proposal of Calculation Method for Equivalent Property of Composite Materials
To predict the mechanical properties of composite materials by using computer is complicated, because it is difficult to model directly by ordinary FEM. A calculation method by using the mesh superposition method and periodic boundary condition has been proposed in order to obtain the equivalent mechanical properties of composite materials easily. The numerical results by proposed method have shown good agreement with ones by the traditional procedure. The proposed method is efficient for the materials with complicated structure like woven fabric composites etc.
