An Analytical Approach of the Behavior of Fiber Reinforced High Shrinkage Materials

N. Shatarat, Bassel J. Hanayneh and H. Katkhuda

Abstract:
This study presents an analytical approach to predict the behavior of fiber-reinforced materials with high shrinkage properties. A simple model formed of a rigid fiber embedded in a cylindrical elastic matrix presenting high shrinkage properties was analyzed. Isotropy and homogeneity of the two constituents, the fiber and matrix, as well as the shrinkage of the matrix were assumed for simplification. The analytical analyses included the variations of the state of link at the fiber-matrix interface due to its effect on the global behavior of fiber-reinforced material. The study showed the effect of the bond strength on the bond length, the effect of the bond length on free shrinkage, the effect of the age of the composite material on the bond length and the effect of the fiber volumetric fraction on the equivalent mean length.
