Uittreksel

The hygro-thermo-expansive response of fibrous networks involves deformation phenomena at multiple length scales. The moisture or temperature induced expansion of individual fibres is transmitted in the network through the inter-fibre bonds; particularly in the case of anisotropic fibres, this substantially influences the resulting overall deformation. This paper presents a methodology to predict the effective properties of bonded fibrous networks. The distinctive features of the work are i) the focus on the hygro-thermo-mechanical response, whereas in the literature generally only the mechanical properties are addressed; ii) the adoption of asymptotic homogenization to model fibrous networks. Asymptotic homogenization is an efficient and versatile multi-scale technique that allows to obtain within a rigorous setting the effective material response, even for complex micro-structural geometries. The fibrous networks considered in this investigation are generated by random deposition of the fibres within a planar region according to an orientation probability density function. Most of the available network descriptions model the fibres essentially as uni-axial elements, thereby not explicitly considering the role of the bonds. In this paper, the fibres are treated as two dimensional ribbon-like elements; this allows to naturally include the contribution of the bonding regions to the effective expansion. The efficacy of the proposed study is illustrated by investigating the effective response for several network realizations, incorporating the influence of different micro-scale parameters, such as fibre hygro-thermo-elastic properties, orientation, geometry, areal coverage.
