journal contributionposted on 2001-11-01, 00:00 authored by W He, Xungai Wang, S Zhang
To further our study of the linear tensile behavior of irregular fibers, in this paper we examine the nonlinear tensile behavior of irregular fibers. As before, we simulate the fiber dimensional irregularities with sine waves of different magnitude and frequency, and report results on the tensile behavior and gauge length effect of the simulated fibers.
