Abstract
A coupled experimental-computational micromechanical framework has been developed to determine mechanical properties of a fiber-reinforced composite lamina, namely longitudinal compressive strength and longitudinal tensile strength. This methodology includes experimental characterization of matrix and interface, combined with numerical simulations of a Representative Volume Element (RVE) of the real microstructure, reproducing fiber diameters and spatial distribution. The interface decohesion mechanism is simulated using cohesive elements. A pressure dependent, elasto-plastic model is employed to capture matrix shear yielding. Tensile and compression damage are also independently included in the matrix constitutive equation. Numerical predictions were compared with experimental results available in the literature.
