Effective properties evaluation for smart composite materials
Journal of the Brazilian Society of Mechanical Sciences and Engineering
The purpose of this article is to present a method which consists in the development of unit cell numerical models for smart composite materials with piezoelectric fibers made of PZT embedded in a non-piezoelectric matrix (epoxy resin). This method evaluates a globally homogeneous medium equivalent to the original composite, using a representative volume element (RVE). The suitable boundary conditions allow the simulation of all modes of the overall deformation arising from any arbitrarydoi:10.1590/s1678-58782012000500004 fatcat:gtxpreorjndltcv6b2ryyqsjpe
