Derivation of Boundary Conditions for Micromechanics Analyses of Plain and Satin Weave Composites Academic Article uri icon


  • Efficient 3D analysis of periodic structures depends on identifying the smallest region to be modeled and the appropriate boundary conditions. This paper describes systematic procedures for deriving the boundary conditions for general periodic structures. These procedures are then used to derive the boundary conditions for plain and satin weave composites.
