...Seyed Hamid Reza Sanei; Randall Doles The aim of this study is to present a representative volume element (RVE) for nanocomposites with different microstructural features using a stochastic finite element approach. To that end, computer-simulated microstructures of nanocomposites were generated...

... of the representative volume elements, and a spatial segment shortest distance algorithm is introduced to construct a 3D random fiber composite with high fiber aspect ratio (100:1) and high volume fraction (31.8%). For the unidirectional fiber networks, volume fractions as high as 70% are achieved when an assortment...
