Paper Abstract

The objective of this study is to investigate the effect of nonlocal precursor damages through modulated constative properties on the Guided wave propagation in composite materials. To understand the effect of lower scale damage on the interaction of wave propagation in composite materials, all the constitutive coefficients need to be evaluated. Hence, a method is developed to investigate the effective material properties of damaged composite materials using the representative volume element (RVE) model. To calculate the full matrix of constitutive coefficients, periodic boundary conditions were applied on the RVE and average stresses and strains were evaluated using a finite element model. In this study, the effect of different percentages of void contents on effective material properties is presented. Further, the effect of modified material properties on the Guided wave propagation in a transversely isotropic composite plate was investigated.
