Plane instability problem for a composite reinforced with a periodic row of short parallel fibers

  • V. A. Dekret
Article

Abstract

The instability of a composite material reinforced with a periodic row of parallel short fibers is studied considering the interaction of neighboring fibers. Emphasis is on the mutual influence of short fibers in the matrix during loss of stability, depending on the distance between them. A piecewise-homogeneous medium model and the three-dimensional linearized theory of stability of deformable bodies are used
