Abstract

A three-dimensional finite element model of unidirectional fibre reinforced composites has been investigated numerically using periodic boundary condition method. This method was used to predict the elastic mechanical behaviour of a unit cell of such composites. Periodic boundary condition was used due to its capability to represent a single unit cell similar to the neighbouring unit cells with continuous physical elements. It is assumed that the paired nodes displaced continuously without separating or interrupting other nodes during the deformation step. From the study, it was revealed that the elastic modulus agreed well with the experimental results, indicating that the present model could be used effectively
