Correlation Functions and Piezoelectromagnetic Properties of Structures Determined by the Method of Correlation Components


A numerical analysis of two-point correlation functions for polydisperse unidirectional fibrous structures of composites is carried out. A refined analytical solution for predicting the effect of disorder of elements of the structures on the tensors of effective piezoelectromagnetic and thermoelastic properties of piezoactive composites is found.
