Micromechanical modeling of damage and fracture of unidirectional fiber reinforced composites: A review

    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

    Abstract

    An overview of methods of the mathematical modeling of deformation, damage and fracture in fiber reinforced composites is presented. The models are classified into five main groups: shear lag-based, analytical models, fiber bundle model and its generalizations, fracture mechanics based and continuum damage mechanics based models and numerical continuum mechanical models. Advantages, limitations and perspectives of different approaches to the simulation of deformation, damage and fracture of fiber reinforced composites are analyzed. (C) 2008 Elsevier B.V.
