    Abstract

    This paper covers research on preparing a nearly exact 3D composite material model that captures the complexity of a woven textile used in these Carbon-Carbon composites. X-ray microtomography has been used for this purpose. Higher resolution models, necessary to establish phase separation between constituents, form very large data sets that have been accommodated in parallel-processing supercomputers. Basic stress/strain behavior has been simulated with due agreement with experimental results through in-situ measurement in a tension test. Elastic modulus measured through either technique bears decent resemblance to the other, thus validating the image-based modeling route for this and other future applications. © 2008 MS&T'08 ®.
