On Application of Periodic Boundary Conditions in Micro/Meso Multi-Scale Analyses of Composites

Abstract:

Article Preview

Both micro- and meso-scale structures are involved in the analyses of many composite materials such as filament-wound tubes. In this paper, a unified approach for applying periodic boundary conditions to micro/meso-scale repeated unit cell models in the finite element analysis is presented. As an application example, a two-scale analysis of a ±θ helical filament-wound tube is provided.
