The Landau-de Gennes model allows for both spatially varying degrees of order and biaxiality, and it is expressed in terms of a tensor field.
where [b.sub.S] = sign(S)b and the biaxiality b [member of] 0, 1/3|S| of the distribution [24].
Since the presence of NPs and the external electric field could induce biaxiality, we introduce the degree of biaxiality as follows [28]:
Fully reversed loading conditions the fatigue behaviour of composite materials as various reinforcement volume fractions compared with the life behaviour, Biaxiality indication, alternating stress and damage factor.
The biaxiality ratio ([lambda]) is applied as the parameter to evaluate the local stress conditions [13, 14].
It is therefore mandatory to know the temperature change [DELTA]T and the biaxiality ratio defined as B = [[epsilon].sup.*.sub.r]/[[epsilon].sup.*.sub.z].
Outputs include fatigue life, damage, factor of safety, stress biaxiality, fatigue sensitivity as shown in Figures.
Analysis results can generate contour plots of fatigue life, damage, factor of safety, and stress biaxiality, as well as rainflow matrix, damage matrix, fatigue sensitivity, and hysteresis.
