Micro-mechanics models are the set of models used to predict the elastic properties of short-fiber reinforced composites from the knowledge of the matrix and the fiber elastic properties, fiber content and fiber aspect ratio.
The following models are available in Autodesk Simulation Moldflow Insight:
If you are using a composite material, or a material with isotropic matrix properties, the Tandon-Weng model is automatically used. If you are using a material that has anisotropic matrix properties, the Mori-Tanaka model is automatically used.
A model proposed by Tandon and Weng in 1984.
A model proposed by Benveniste in 1987.
A model proposed by Halpin and Tsai in 1969.
A model proposed by Krenchel in 1964.
A model proposed by Cox in 1952.
A model proposed by Ogorkiewicz and Weidmann and Counto in 1974.
The automatic setting will appropriate for most simulations. The alternative options have been provided for specialist users conducting research into the fluid mechanics of fiber-filled materials. Find detailed references related to these micro-mechanics models in NO LABEL
