Bridging Stress Modeling Of Composite Materials Reinforced By Fibers Using Discrete Element Method

Chong Wang, Kellem M. Soares & Luis E. Kosteski
The problem of toughening in brittle materials
reinforced by fibers is complex, involving all of the mechanical
properties of fibers, matrix and the fiber/matrix interface, as well as
the geometry of the fiber. Development of new numerical methods
appropriate to toughening simulation and analysis is necessary. In
this work, we have performed simulations and analysis of toughening
in brittle matrix reinforced by randomly distributed fibers by means
of the discrete elements method. At first, we...
