Recently, the homogenization method is becoming a matter of interest as a new analysis method of composite materials. This method aims at stricter modeling and more precise simulation for any kind of reinforcement. Discretization of complicated microstructures of such reinforcement, however, becomes the bottleneck in the analysis procedure. Therefore, a new simulation technique based on a fixed grid is proposed in this paper. Fundamental investigation of the accuracy of the homogenization method based on a fixed grid for unidirectional FRP is presented. The obtained elastic constants show good agreement with the solution of the Halpin-Tsai equation. Microscopic stress distribution has also been evaluated well compared with conventional smooth finite-element discretization.
