Homogenization of aligned fuzzy fiber composites Academic Article uri icon


  • The aim of this work is to study composites in which carbon fibers coated with radially aligned carbon nanotubes are embedded in a matrix. The effective properties of these composites are identified using the asymptotic expansion homogenization method in two steps. Homogenization is performed in different coordinate systems, the cylindrical and the Cartesian, and a numerical example are presented. 2011 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
