Paper Abstract

Micromechanical Finite Element (FE) analysis was used to model stress and strain fields in and around embedded optical fibers (EOFs) in flexural test coupons of carbon fiber composite. The coupons were used in studies of EOF effects on macroscopic laminate properties. The FE method allows complex material inhomogeneities, laminate boundaries, and load conditions to be modelled.
