Abstract

In the numerical simulation of mechanical behaviors of composite materials and structures, a novel hierarchical modelling technique is proposed. Not only the global deformation but also the mesoscopic stresses are analyzed precisely with less human efforts than conventional methods. Four level hierarchy is defined for the textile composites, and the homogenization method and finite element mesh superposition technique are adopted. The latter technique makes it possible to overlay arbitrary local fine mesh on the global rough mesh. A panel with a rib made of knitted fabric composite material is analyzed by the proposed method. Three-dimensional modelling of the mesostructure of knitted fabric composite material is also shown. The validity of the proposed method was examined, and the mesoscopic stresses are calculated easily.
