Abstract:Castigliano's second theorem is applied to determine the linear elastic constitutive response of plain-weave meshes under biaxial tension and bending. In-plane force-deflection relations are derived through examining a representative element of the mesh. The analysis includes the contributions of tension, bending, and transverse shear to the complementary energy.
An experimental program was implemented to verify the energy method theory. Samples of aluminum, steel, and brass wire mesh were tested quasi-statically under uniaxial tension. The experimental results compare very well with theoretical predictions.
An investigation into the nature of the stress distribution in a fiber bundle of a woven composite material was performed using a two-dimensional anisotropic theory of elasticity analysis of a laminated curved beam subjected to an arbitrarily oriented in-plane load.
