  • Description: The aim of this paper is to evaluate the effective properties of composite materials with periodic random packing of ellipsoids of different volume fractions and aspect ratios. Therefore, we employ computational homogenization. A very efficient MD-based method is applied to generate the periodic random packing of the ellipsoids. The method is applicable even for extremely high volume fractions up to 60%. The influences of the volume fraction and aspect ratio on the effective properties of the composite materials are studied in several numerical examples.
