Advance algorithm for two-dimensional fibrous-network generation

Download (3.62 MB)
Fibrous networks are abundant in nature and commonly used in industry. However, their geometrical modelling is challenging due to their complex microstructure. In this study, a novel method, called fibre placement method (FPM), is developed. In contrast to the existing methods, the FPM has various advantages, such as a fully parametric definition of structure. Also, this method is superior in mimicking the stochastic microstructure of fibrous networks compared with other schemes. Various fibrous networks can be generated easily by employing a user-friendly graphical user interface. Also, the generated fibrous networks are compatible with analysis software such as computer-aided engineering tools. Finally, this algorithm characterizes various features of networks including uniformity, void area fraction, and average curliness.
