Prediction of Dynamic Mechanical Properties of Viscoelastic Composites

Sandeep Kumar Gautam and Rabindra Kumar Patel


In this paper, prediction of dynamic mechanical properties of viscoelastic composites has been done by using finite element-based software ABAQUS. Viscoelastic material has been considered matrix and elastic as reinforcement phase. In this composite, epoxy has been chosen as matrix and alumina as reinforcement. Viscoelastic phase has been modelled by generalized Maxwell model. A stress relaxation test has been performed on the composite sample using ABAQUS. Relaxation data obtained from the test have been used to predict the storage modulus, loss modulus, and loss tangent of the viscoelastic composite.
