Wir präsentieren einen Algorithmus zur schnellen Erzeugung von SMC Mikrostrukturen hoher Güte, durch Verwendung einer exakten Schließung und eines quasi-zufälligen Samplings. Darüber hinaus stellen wir ein modulares Framework zur Modellierung anisotroper Schädigung vor. Unser Konzept der Extraktionstensoren und Schädigungsfunktionen ermöglicht die Beschreibung komplexer Vorgänge. Darüber hinaus schlagen wir einen ganzheitlichen Multiskalenansatz zur Bestimmung anisotroper Versagenskriterien vor. - We introduce an algorithm that allows for a fast generation of SMC composite microstructures. An exact closure approximation and a quasi-random orientation sampling ensure high fidelity. Furthermore, we present a modular framework for anisotropic damage evolution. Our concept of extraction tensors and damage-hardening functions enables the description of complex damage-degradation. In addition, we propose a holistic multiscale approach for constructing anisotropic failure criteria.

The mechanical behavior of many applied materials arises from their microstructure. Thus, to aid the design, development and industrialization of new materials, robust computational homogenization methods are indispensable. The present thesis is devoted to investigating and developing FFT-based micromechanics solvers for efficiently computing the (thermo)mechanical response of nonlinear composite materials with complex microstructures.
