Abstract [en]

A concentric cylinder model for an A/-phase composite with orthotropic properties of constituents was previously presented by the authors. With only minor modifications the model allows for including also free hygroexpansion terms in the elastic stress-strain relationship in order to deal with orthotropic phase swelling. Thus the effect of wood fibre ultrastructure and cell wall hygroelastic properties on wood fibre composite hygroexpansion may be analysed. Multiscale modelling was performed to calculate the hygroexpansion coefficients of both the fibre cell wall and the aligned wood fibre composite. Furthermore, the fibre's helical structure leads to an extension-twist coupling and thus a free fibre will deform axially and also rotate upon loading in longitudinal fibre direction. Within the composite, however, the fibre rotation will be restricted. Therefore, the decision was to compare the composite performance in the two extreme cases (i) free rotation (ii) no rotation of the fibre in the composite.
