Three-dimensional periodic micromechanical models are used for studying the mechanical behavior of discontinuously reinforced ductile matrix composites. The models are based on unit cells that contain a number of randomly positioned and, where applicable, randomly oriented spherical, spheroidal or cylindrical reinforcements. The Finite Element method is used to resolve the microscale stress and strain fields and to predict the homogenized responses under overall uniaxial tensile loading in the… CONTINUE READING
