3 Fiber-Reinforced Composite Materials 2-D model y matrix unit cell x interphases fiber

4 Standard Numerical Methods Finite element method Boundary element method Finite element mesh (after Wacker et al., 1998)

5 Our Approach Direct boundary integral method Approximation of the unknowns by Fourier Series or Spherical Harmonics Complex (for plane problems) or real variables formalism

6 Direct Boundary Integral Method u, n u s,σ, σ n s s Governing differential equations + Boundary conditions Enrico Betti n Fundamental solution Fundamental solution (e.g. point force in plane) L Integral identities (e.g. reciprocal theorem) Boundary Integral Equation

7 Fourier Series On the Propagation of Heat in Solid Bodies, 1807 Jean Baptiste Joseph Fourier f ( x) = 1 2 m= 1 a0 + an cosmx + bn sin mx m= 1 sin mx, cosmx [ 0, 2π ] z j R j θ j τ a complete orthogonal system over [ c ϕ ( x) + c ϕ ( x) + c N ϕ ( x) ] 0 f ( x) N N

8 Spherical Harmonics William Thomson (Lord Kelvin) T&T Treatise on Natural Philosophy (1867) Y + n Surface harmonics ( θ, ϕ ) = A P ( cosθ ) n m m m { A cosmϕ + B sin mϕ} T ( cosθ ) n n n m= 1 n n A complete orthogonal system Over the unit sphere (Lyapunov, 1899) Peter Guthrie Tait f ( θ, ϕ ) ( θ, ϕ ) = n=0 Y n

9 Algorithm (perfect bond between the constituents) 1. Fix number of terms in Fourier series 2. Solve linear algebraic system (error δ1) 3. Estimate an error for each inclusion (error δ2) 4. Increase number of terms in Fourier series by some value 5. Steps 2-4 repeated until error δ2 is met 6. Displacements, stresses and strains calculated in the matrix and the inclusions

10 Error Estimation Use the displacements at the boundaries as the unknowns to form a system of equations Calculate stresses at the boundaries Compare the stresses at a number of uniformly distributed points t 2 t 1 max t= t 1,..., t K { ε } t δ 2 t K

11 Numerical Example Multiple cracks and circular inhomogeneities in an infinite domain subjected to uniaxial tension in the x direction; contours of σ xx

12 Imperfect Interface Models Spring-type interface Partial debonding p Γ j p R j p z j p Γ j p R j p z j debonding p p µ j ν j p p µ j ν j Explicit presence of interphase layers p Γj1 p R j 1 p z j 1 p Γ p j0 Rj 0 p z j 0 p p µ j 0 ν j0 p p µ j1 ν j1 p Γ jn p R jn p Rj 0 p z j p p µ j 0 ν j 0 p Γ j0 p µ j (r) p ν j (r)

17 Computed radial and shear displacement discontinuities (open circles) compared with analytical solution (solid lines); N= u r 0.10 / a, u θ 0.10 / a, Angle, (a) θ Angle, (b) θ

18 Example debonding of single inclusion σ = σ yy 0 y µ,ν x µ ' = µ, ν ' = ν Smooth interface: Stippes, Wilson, and Krull (1966) Rough interface: Hussain and Pu (1971)

19 Radial stress in zone of contact for smooth inclusion: solid line is analytical solution; open circles are computed results /σ 0 σ rr Angle,θ

20 Circumferential stress for smooth inclusion: solid line is analytical solution; open circles are computed results /σ 0 σ θθ Angle, θ -1.0

21 Comparison of computed radial (a) and shear (b) stresses for rough inclusion: solid lines are results from Fourier series approach /σ 0 σ rr 0.3 σ rθ /σ Angle, θ (a) Angle, θ (b)

22 Modeling evolving damage Initial attempt: Increment loading Use Mohr-Coulomb criterion σ r θ c σ rr tanφ ; σ rr T φ σ rθ c T c σ rr φ (c is cohesion; is angle of friction; T is tensile strength) Allow slip, separation (cracking); prohibit overlapping of displacement discontinuities during iteration

23 Issues Crack initiation and propagation are problems: If no crack is present then no stress raiser exists; Small crack produces locally high stresses crack grows too much using tensile stress criterion Cannot calculate stress intensity factors Better to integrate stresses over a characteristic length? (What should this be?) Work is continuing
