Abstract:

Equilibrium equations and boundary conditions are derived and investigated for bodies of a homogeneous isotropic elastic material reinforced with a large number of thin elastic rods of filaments. The content of the paper relates it to the authors work, which essentially analyzed the case of a body reinforced with a large number of flat parallel plates of higher rigidity. The initial assumptions on which the theory is based are formulated. The next two sections are devoted to derivation of the differential equilibrium equations and natural boundary conditions for reinforced bodies. The results are discussed. A conception of edge effects in reinforced bodies is then derived, and the limits of applicability of the theory are discussed. In the last section, equations that make it possible to take approximate account of the influence of local reinforcing element buckling are written. Author
