Here's a description of three-directionally reinforced composite materials and the micromechanical and macromechanical design analysis procedures used in their application. A micromechanical analysis uses three dimensional finite element techniques to determine macroscopic properties and the stress in fiber bundles and binding matrix. The new method does not have the limitations of previous analytic techniques and appears amenable to inclusion of the effect of voids, cracks, and other nonlinear features.
