Abstract:Expressions and bounds for the five effective elastic moduli of a unidirectional fiber composite, consisting of transversely isotropic fibers and matrix, are derived on the basis of analogies between isotropic and transversely isotropic elasticity equations. Application of results for determination of the five elastic moduli of graphite fibers is discussed. Effective thermal expansion coefficients are derived on the basis of a general theorem. Effective conductivities, dielectric constants, and magnetic permea… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
