I am pretty new to FEM, but want to try to simulate the behavior of carbon nanotubes reinforced resin. I read another thread about carbon fibre in resin, so can I do similar setup for nanotubes? is it possible? or I have to use bulk approximations for many nano-sized tube? Thanks.
The simulation would be very basic, tension, compression... to be compared with DMA data.
So my following questions are:
If I can use direct nanotube in resin, I plan use a solid (or a shell) with interconnected links inside. Do you have any suggestions to generate a lot of interconnected links in an efficient way?
Or I have to use bulk approximations? Or it is not even possible to simulate such different sized materials together?
Thanks a lot!
