Effective thermoelastic properties of composites with periodicity in cylindrical coordinates Academic Article uri icon


  • The aim of this work is to study composites that present cylindrical periodicity in the microstructure. The effective thermomechanical properties of these composites are identified using a modified version of the asymptotic expansion homogenization method, which accounts for unit cells with shell shape. The microscale response is also shown. Several numerical examples demonstrate the use of the proposed approach, which is validated by other micromechanics methods. 2012 Elsevier Ltd.
