young's modulus of a unidirectional discontinuous-fibre composite is derived in the present study by the use of a modified shear-lag model. To achieve this, correct determination of the stress transfer at the fibre ends and selection of the
The Voigt estimation or the rule of mixture has been believed to be the upper bound of the effective young's modulus of composites. However, this is only true in the situations where the Poisson effect is not significant. In this paper, we

The cross sectional area of the composite occupied by the fibres is just f, the volume fraction of the fibres multiplied by the Since the fibre and matrix often have quite different elastic moduli then the stress in each must be different - in fact the
The young's modulus of the interphase is described with the help of a mathematical model. The young's moduli in composites with different-treated glass fibres and differently cured epoxy resins are determined for unidirectional composites
The effective elastic behaviour of a biopolymer composite with random microstructure is studied. The effective elasticity modulus is computed as function of the protein fraction with the hypothesis of an imperfect interface. This interface is

Four new models for relative young's modulus of concentrated particulate composites are developed using a differential scheme along with the solution of an infinitely dilute dispersion of particles in a solid matrix. The solid matrix phase is
In this paper we firstly describe a mechanism of load transfer from matrix to fibre about single short fibre models. Next, applying the above results, we predict young's modulus of short fibre-reinforced materials provided that the orientation of
We assume (as is common) that the fibers have a large young's modulus Y or a large stiffness (not hardness!). The matrix has a small stiffness. We also assume, for the sake of simplicity, that all fibers run parallel to each other. Our composite

11 Sep 2015 We have designed a new type of composite materials which not only has a young's modulus much larger than the Voigt limit, but also is always nearly isotropic. Moreover, its Poisson's ratio can be designed at a desired value,
In materials science, a general rule of mixtures is a weighted mean used to predict various properties of a composite material made up of continuous and unidirectional fibers. It provides a theoretical upper- and lower-bound on properties such as the elastic modulus, mass density, ultimate
Composite materials have their microstructure designed in terms of their macroscopic constituents, e.g. fibers in a In normal situations, the fiber has a larger young's modulus than the matrix, and for the continuous fibers shown, where the
