Definition of Effective Material Properties of Recycled Plastic: Image Analysis and Homogenization
Z. Procházková, V. Králík, K. Doubrava, M. Šejnoha
pages 244 - 245, full text

The influence of foaming agent on the properties of steel-reinforced beams made of recycled plastic material is studied in the paper. The foaming agent creates a porous core in the recycled plastic elements, which must be reflected when deriving the effective properties to be used in macroscopic simulations. To that end, standard image analysis combined with nanoindentation and the Mori-Tanaka micromechanical model will be adopted to identify elastic material properties of the plastic material both inside and outside of the core. These are expected to enter an independent macroscopic analysis of the steel-bar reinforced beams.
