Local models for NCF composite materials mechanical performance prediction
2007 (English)In: CD-ROM proceedings of the Sixtennth International Conference on Composite Materials, July 8 - 13, 2007, Kyoto, Japan: A giant step towards environmental awareness: from green composites to aerospace / [ed] Kazuro Kageyama, Kyōto, 2007Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper presents models for NCF reinforced composite materials performance prediction developed within the European research project FALCOM. The research project was conducted during the years 2002 and 2005 and was led by QinetiQ, UK. In total nine European countries were represented in FALCOM. The models consider material heterogeneity on three scales. On the micro-scale homogenization of the fibre bundle is performed. On the meso-scale formulations of Representative Volume Elements with different degrees of sophistication are defined. Finally on the macro-scale models span from straightforward employment of laminate theory to full through-thickness 3D-representation of the meso-scale features. The paper illustrates the diversity of local performance models for NCF composite analysis presenting a selection of models developed in the FALCOM project.
