well, my question is already in the title..
I am working on a simulation of the impregnation of carbon fibers with resin.
Simple planar geometry, the fibers are only represented by four rigid walls.
I would like to give these rigid walls a material property. This way, I could define the interaction between my phase resin and the fibers, especially regarding adhesion through surface tension, I hope so at least.
Is there a way to do this? I assume it is not, because I did not found something like this on the internet. But I thought I might better ask..
In the case that it is not possible to do this, the only way to define physical interaction between the fibers and the resin would be a Fluid Structure Interaction, right? There I could model the fibers as solid carbon fibers.
A FSI is not really an option at the moment, the computational effort is already quite big with my simple planar model. Are there any other ways?
Thanks in advance for your advice!
