    Abstract

    Three-dimensional finite-element analyses are used to assess the accuracy of simplified composite micromechanics equations (SME) for hygral, thermal, and mechanical properties of unidirectional composites with orthotropic fibers. The properties predicted by the SME are in reasonably good agreement with those predicted by the three-dimensional finite-element analyses. This correlation demonstrates that the SME can be used with confidence in predicting the hygral, thermal, and mechanical behavior of unidirectional fiber composites.
