Application of Mesh Free Method to Evaluation of Woven Fabric Composite Elastic Moduli
A computational method for the micro-mechanical material model of woven fabric composite material was developed in this paper based on a repeated unit cell approach and two smooth fibre modes were presented. The stiffness matrix was evaluated with a domain integral by the use of radial basis function interpolations without element mesh. The applications of mesh free method to evaluate woven fabric composite elastic moduli have been presented and good accuracy has been achieved compared with the results by other approaches.
