On the viscoelastic response of laminated composites.

Jie. Feng
This thesis addresses the problem of analytical determination of the response behaviour of fibre reinforced composite materials, under both quasi-static and dynamic loadings. In the first part of the thesis (Chapters 2 and 3), the effects of microstructural parameters, such as fibre aspect ratio, fibre off-axis angle and fibre volume fraction, on the damping and stiffness of a fibre-composite system are examined. Quasi-static models are, then, developed by using a "Forced Balance Approach" to define...
