A Better Alternative to RVE Analysis

RVE analysis is popular for computational homogenization. It can be used independently for virtual testing or as a module for multiscale modeling. Its popularity is mainly due to the maturity and acceptance of commercial finite element software. RVE analysis usually requires a 3D domain to obtain 3D properties and local fields. If a 2D RVE is used, only 2D properties and local fields are obtained. To obtain the complete set of properties, multiple analysis is needed. For example, to obtain the complete stiffness matrix, six 3D RVE analyses are needed.
