Comparison of Meso-Mechanics and Numerical Simulation Based on Particle-Reinforced Composites

Shulei Sun, Wenguo Chen
Abstract—With the macroscopic mechanical properties of the particle reinforced composites, it has been used to approximate theoretical solution for a long time. With the development of computer, the comparison of uniaxial tension and simple shear is performed by the meso-mechanical theory and simulation. The simulation model uses the representative volume element (RVE) with periodic boundary conditions. The macroscopic stress and strain of the volume-averaged method use the Mori-Tanaka model and the Double-Inclusion model based on inclusion theory. The results demonstrate that the results with the meso-mechanics are agreement highly with the numerical simulation in the case of the linear elastic deformation. However, the results with the meso-mechanical method have deviation compared to the numerical simulation in the case of finite deformation.

Index Terms—Representative volume element, meso-mechanics, composite materials, numerical simulation, anisotropy.
