This article presents a microscale modelling approach coupled with X-ray computed micro-tomography for the evaluation of material properties of polylactic acid (PLA) reinforced by birch pulp fibers under the effect of moisture. The results in terms of elastic moduli and hygroexpansion deformation were found in good agreement with the measurements taken at different levels of water uptake.

Use of micro-tomography for validation of method to identify interfacial shear strength from tensile tests of short regenerated cellulose fibre composites Hajlane, A.; Miettinen, Arttu; Madsen, B.; Beauson, J.; Joffe, R. (Institute of Physics Publishing Ltd., 2016)The interfacial shear strength of short regenerated cellulose fibre/polylactide composites was characterized by means of an industry-friendly adhesion test method. The interfacial shear strength was back-calculated from ...
Koivu, Viivi (University of Jyväskylä, 2010)This thesis deals with creeping fluid flow through fibrous porous materials. Permeability through a porous medium is a measure of the ability of the material to transmit fluids. For testing and demonstration purposes the ...
Multiscale microstructural characterization of particulate-reinforced composite with non-destructive X-ray micro- and nanotomography Dastgerdi, J. Nafar; Miettinen, Arttu; Parkkonen, Joni; Remes, H. (Elsevier Ltd, 2018)Methods based on X-ray tomography are developed to study the relevant statistical quantities describing the microstructural inhomogeneity of particulate reinforced composites. The developed methods are applied in estimating ...
Joffre, Thomas; Miettinen, Arttu; Wernersson, Erik L.G.; Isaksson, Per; Gamstedt, E. Kristofer (Elsevier BV, 2014)Abstract. Heterogeneous materials tend to fail at the weakest cross-section, where the presence of microstructural heterogeneities or defects controls the tensile strength. Short-fibre composites are an example of heterogeneous ...
Sippola, Merja; Immonen, Kirsi; Miettinen, Arttu; Laukkanen, Anssi; Andesson, Tom; Peltola, Heidi; Harlin, Ali; Holmberg, Kenneth (Sage Publications Ltd., 2016)This paper studies failure of birch pulp–polylactic acid composites. Stiffness and strength are calculated using the theory of short fibre composites and the results are compared to experimental data. The results differed ...
