This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Numerical methods to estimate material properties usually involve analysis of a representative volume element (RVE) or unit cell (UC). The representative volume element (RVE) or unit cell (UC) is the smallest volume over which a measurement can be made that will yield a value representative of the whole. RVEs and UCs are widely used in the characterisation of materials with multiscale architectures such as composites. However, finite element (FE) software packages such as Abaqus and Comsol MultiPhysics do not offer the capability for RVE and UC modelling directly on their own. To apply them to analyse RVEs and UCs, the generation of the FE models for them, the imposition of boundary conditions, and the extraction of directly relevant results are essentially the responsibility of the user. These have tended to be incorrectly implemented by users! For the first time, this book will provide a comprehensive account on correct modelling of RVEs and UCs, which will eliminate any uncertainties and ambiguities. The book offers a complete and thorough review on the subject of RVEs and UCs, establishing a framework on a rigorous mathematical and mechanical basis to ensure that basic concepts, such as symmetry and free body diagrams, are applied correctly and consistently. It also demonstrates to readers that rigorous applications of mathematics and mechanics are meant to make things clear, consistent, thorough and, most of all, simple and easy to follow, rather than the opposite as many perceive. As a result, the book shows that the appropriate use of RVEs and UCs can deliver an effective and reliable means of material characterisation. It not only provides a much needed comprehensive account on material characterisation but, more importantly, explains how such characterisation can be conducted in a consistent and systematic manner. It also includes a ready-to-use open source code for UCs that can be downloaded from a companion site for potential users to utilise, adapt and expand as they wish. - The companion site for the book can be found at https://www.elsevier.com/books-and-journals/book-companion/9780081026380 • The theories presented in this book will give users more confidence when applying RVE and UC models to analyse materials of complex architectures with accuracy and efficiency • Systematic explanations of RVE and UC theories have been included, as well as their applications in composites • It illustrates in detail how to set up UC models and provides an open source code to implement via Abaqus
