The Mesoscopic Investigation on Moduli Prediction in Visco-Elastic Particle Reinforced Composites
The visco-elastic mechanism of particles reinforced composites has been investigated through revised Eshelby equivalent inclusion theory. A visco-elastic model is applied. Furthermore, by introducing Heaviside step function and Laplace transform, the creep constitutional equation related to strain rate effect is achieved. Finally, by equivalent inclusion theory, introducing secant modulus, the material moduli with time and volume fraction concerning Glass/ED6 particles reinforced materials have been given. The results show that the visco-elastic property of composite material is mainly determined by the visco-elastic behavior of the matrix, which meet experiment results well. It can be concluded from the results that there exits close relationship between the inclusion shape, volume fraction and loading path.
