Abstract

Modeling kink-band formation in woven composites using a detailed micro-model is numerically expensive. In order to reduce the computational resources, a method to homogenize fiber-tows is proposed which uses a rules of mixture approach. The method is tested by comparing the stiffness and compressive strength of fiber-tows simulated with the proposed homogenization method and simulations of fiber-tows with the micro-structure modeled in detail. Results obtained for both straight fiber and woven composites indicate that the proposed homogenization technique can be used to predict the stiffness and compressive strength of UD and textile composites.
