Abstract(s)The material properties of short fiber composites, such as modulus, strength and thermal expansion, are greatly dependent on the fiber orientation state in the composite. Although the orientation pattern is often quite complex, models that allow its prediction have been successfully applied in combination with micromechanical models to calculate moduli and thermal properties. This paper describes the derivation of a model to predict the strength of short fiber composites with arbitrary fiber orientation and fiber length distribution based on classical (micro-) mechanical theories. The predictions are in good agreement with data measured on short fiber composites with different fiber contents.
