Shape formation of helical ribbons induced by material anisotropy

Helices are ubiquitous building blocks in natural and engineered systems. Previous studies showed that helical ribbon morphology can result from anisotropic driving forces and geometric misorientation between the principal axes of the driving forces and the geometric axes. However, helical ribbon shapes induced by elastic modulus anisotropy have not been systematically examined even though most natural and engineered structures are made of composite materials with anisotropic mechanical properties.

regarding Microstructure analysis in ABAQUS

Hi all,

 I am doing microstructure analysis in 3D. To implement anisotropy, i need to give the orientation data. Does anyone know, how to give the orientation in ABAQUS?

The data i have in hand is Euler Angles... Can i give the data manually for four of five grains?

Also, please tell me about the ORIENT subroutine in ABAQUS...

Expansion behavior of cellular solids

The expansion behavior of cellular materials is especially attractive for potential applications such as design and development of bio-inspired adaptive materials since most of biological materials have a cellular microstructure at least at one of their hierarchical levels. Wood, bone, bamboo, ice plant and honeybee combs are examples of such natural materials.

 

impact damage due to laminar construction??

Hi everyone,

 

According to a book chapter written by NL Hancox, 'Laminar construction of composites which is required if the reinforcing fibres are to be used efficiently and anisotropy reduced, can be a reason why composite laminates are vulnerable to impact damage.'

Now I have three questions;

1-What is meant here by the specified 'laminar construction to reduce anisotropy'?Does it mean to use different orientation for fibres in each ply to have an isotropic material at the laminate level?

Micro-sphere Model

Hi all,

I am currently working on micro-sphere model like the one used by Miehe, Ihlemann and Pawleski. I wonder if someone know a FEM code who use this type of model.

Thanks a lot
