**Constitutive Relationships for Composite Materials**

Ⅰ. Material Behavior in Principal Material Axes Isotropic materials uniaxial loading

3
2-D loading Where [ S ]: compliance matrix Where [Q]: stiffness matrix

4
**Isotropic Materials Note:**

1. Only two independent material constants in the constitutive equation. 2. No normal stress and shear strain coupling, or no shear stress and normal strain coupling. Examples: polycrystalline metals, Polymers Randomly oriented fiber-reinforced composites Particulate-reinforced composites

**Transversely isotropic materials**

In L–T plane Principal material axes L: longitudinal direction T: transverse direction

6
**Transversely isotropic materials**

In T1, T2 plane Same as those for isotropic materials: Principal material axes L: longitudinal direction T: transverse direction

**Transversely isotropic materials**

Where EL: elastic modulus in longitudinal direction ET: elastic modulus in transverse direction GLT: shear modulus in L – T plane GTT: shear modulus in transverse plane LT: major Poisson’s ratio (strain in T – direction caused by stress in L – direction) TL : minor Poisson’s ratio And Note: 1. 4 independent material constants (EL, ET, GLT, LT ) in L – T plane while 5 (EL, ET, GLT, LT, GTT) for 3-D state. 2. No normal stress and shear strain coupling in L – T axes or no shear stress and normal strain coupling in L – T axes

**Off-axis loading - deformation**

1. 4 material constants in 1-2 plane. 2. There is normal stress and shear strain coupling (forθ≠0, 90˚ ), or shear stress and normal strain coupling.

**In summary, for a general planar loading, by principle of superposition**

23
**Micromechanics of Unidirectional Composites**

Properties of unidirectional lamina is determined by volume fraction of constituent materials (fiber, matrix, void, etc.) form of the reinforcement (fiber, particle, …) orientation of fibers

24
**Volume fraction & Weight fraction**

Vi=volume, vi=volume fraction= Wi=weight, wi=weight fraction= Where subscripts i = c: composite f: fiber m: matrix

25
Conservation of mass: Assume composite is void-free:

26
Density of composite Generalized equations for n – constituent composite

27
**Void content determination**

Experimental result (with voids): Theoretical calculation (excluding voids): In general, void content < 1% Good composite > 5% Poor composite

33
**Factors influencing EL and scu**

mis-orientation of fibers fibers of non-uniform strength due to variations in diameter, handling and surface treatment, fiber length stress concentration at fiber ends (discontinuous fibers) interfacial conditions residual stresses

34
**Transverse Stiffness, ET**

Assume all constituents are in linear elastic range: Generalized equation for n – constituent composite:

35
**Transverse Strength Factors influence scu:**

Due to stress (strain) concentration Factors influence scu: properties of fiber and matrix the interface bond strength the presence and distribution of voids (flaws) internal stress and strain distribution (shape of fiber, arrangement of fibers)
