Abstract

The computer simulated 3D simple sequentional inhibition model of short-fibre strengthened composite materials is presented. Short fibers are approximated as cylinders with hemispherical caps, their spatial arrangement is described by the distribution function of spherical contact distance. The simulated SSI model is compared from this point of view with some well known theoretical models (Boolean and lattice models of balls and cylinders). The possibility of modelling randomly distributed particles by a lattice model with different intensity as well as the influence of the particle shape is discussed.
