Micromechanics-Unidirectional-Young Modulus-Transversal

The modulus of elasticity in the transverse direction can be predicted using different methods, with varying degree of complexity and accuracy. These methods can be accessed from this page, including:

  • Inverse rule of mixtures (not good for predicting transverse modulus)
  • Halpin-Tsai (better but semi empirical and only for isotropic fibers)
  • Periodic microstructure method (excellent for predicting all the elastic properties, even for not isotropic fibers (e.g., carbon) fibers)
  • Stress partitioning method/coefficient (better but semi empirical and only for isotropic fibers)
