Abstract

The Mori-Tanaka elastic response of composites with inclusions exhibiting nontrivial orientation distributions is studied. The effect of texture is evaluated for various fiber and matrix materials, various inclusion geometries, and in the presence of anisotropic fibers. In particular, the effect of misalignment is studied. The polyphase extension of the Mori-Tanaka theory is employed to determine the effective response of aligned composites containing defects of different morphologies.
