Nine papers about fatigue modelling of short fiber composite

Recently, we have published a series of nine papers about modelling fatigue and damage in short fiber composites.  Together, they provide a complete description of modelling of such materials including wavy fiber composites; starting from appropriate homogenization method to component level fatigue simulation. Discussion and feedback on the papers is welcome.

Effects of Nanoporosity on the Mechanical Properties and Applications of Aerogels in Composite Structures

Newly published book chapter - http://link.springer.com/chapter/10.1007/978-3-319-31662-8_4 Aerogels are ultralight solids with nanoporous structure and are one of the world’s lightest materials available in the market. It is a dry gel, principally made up of 99.8 % of air and weighing just around three times that of air. The first aerogels were realized in 1931, when Kistler (J Phys Chem 36:52–64, 1932) attempted to remove liquid from a wet gel.

RVE analysis without BCs and periodic mesh requirements

RVE analysis becomes a routine exercise in material modeling. Usually it is carried out using finite element codes such as ABAQUS or ANSYS. The main thing one should pay attention is to applying the right boundary conditions. It is settled that periodic boundary conditions are the preferred boundary conditions to be applied. The BCs are that u_i-\epsilon_{ij}x_j should be equal on the corresponding edges. This type of boundary conditions can be applied using coupled equations constraints. This requires that one creates a mesh with corresponding nodes on periodic edges.

PhD vacancy (4 years) on the ultrasonic polar scan method for non-destructive testing of composites @ Ghent University (Belgium)

Non-destructive testing (NDT) refers to techniques that are used in the life-cycle of a structural component to investigate their quality, functionality and 'health' without destroying the object, nor affecting its properties. The continuous development of more advanced materials, like fiber reinforced plastics, requires new and more sophisticated NDT techniques. One such an innovative NDT technique is the Ultrasonic Polar Scan (UPS) which has recently been developed, both experimentally and numerically, in our research group.

PhD vacancy (4 years) on multi-scale fatigue damage modelling of unidirectional fibre-reinforced composites @ Ghent University (Belgium)

The core idea of this fundamental research project is to develop a consistent multi-scale modelling framework for fatigue damage in unidirectionally reinforced composites. Three scales are distinguished: (i) the micro-scale, where individual fibre filaments are arranged in a polymer matrix.
