Effect of a curved fiber on the overall material stiffness

• The effect of fiber curvature on the overall material stiffness is studied. • The stiffness contribution tensor (N-tensor) formalism is used for the analysis. • N-tensors of individual fibers are calculated numerically and estimated analytically. • Proposed approximation procedure gives good predi...
