    Abstract

    A simple and realistic model for estimating the effective modulus of fiber-reinforced hybrid composites is proposed. Based upon a two-phase model developed earlier by micromechanical analysis, a new approach to deal with hybrid composites is adopted by introducing an “equivalent virtual volume fraction.” The obtained results reflect the matrix effect more adequately than previous “self-consistent” theories.
