Abstract:

The work in this project focused on multiscale modeling of composite laminates between the homogenized layer model and fibermatrix micro-scale model in the region of high stress gradients. The goal was to develop a macroscopic theory, which can provide the connection between macromechanics ply level and micro mechanics fibermatrix, especially in characterizing the micro-stress of composite laminates near edges and holes.
