Multiscale Modeling of Residual Stress Development in Continuous Fiber-Reinforced Unidirectional Thick Thermoset Composites

Figure 10

Cure simulation employing a mechanically symmetric RVE subjected to the thermal transient in the part core (refer to Figure 8(c)): comparison of the simulated evolution of maximum principal stress at three locations within the matrix (refer to Figure 8(a)) with that simulated using a mechanically symmetric RVE subjected to the autoclave temperature cycle.
