Boundary-value problem in the correlative approximation of the method of quasi-periodic components for a unidirectional fiber composite

  • A. A. Pan'kov


The boundary-value problem in the correlative approximation of the method of quasi-periodic components and a numerical algorithm based on the boundary element method for determining the nonuniform stress fields in the matrix of a unidirectional fiber composite with a disordered structure are considered. The numerical results and analysis of the probability density function, for example, for normal stresses at some points of the interface of absolutely rigid fibers of the composite are presented.
