The modulus in the direction perpendicular to the fibers is called transverse modulus. The inverse rule of mixtures (IROM) is the simplest and least accurate micromechanics formula. It is included in CADEC for didactic teaching purposes. Other than this particular page, all internal calculations in CADEC use the Periodic Microstructure Model (PMM) that is much more accurate. Comparison of model predictions to experimental data and to theoretical upper and lower bounds is presented in the textbook.To access this resource please sign in or register (It's free!).
