Abstract

In this paper, an advanced geometric model to simulate the periodic structure of unidirectional fibrous composites is presented. This model takes into consideration the influence of fiber contiguity in parallel with the concept of interphase on the thermomechanical properties of the overall material. Next, by the use of this model the authors propose closed – form expressions to estimate the longitudinal and transverse thermal conductivity of this type of composites.
