Image processing technology is utilized for numerical analysis by the homogenization method for intermetallic composites. While the asymptotic homogenization method characterizes thermo-mechanical properties of composites and localizes the deformation to the microscopic level, the digital image-based (DIB) modeling method appropriately defines a finite element (FE) model of a representative volume element (RVE), i.e., a unit cell, through the use of digitized images. The results in linear and nonlinear analyses reflect the effects of the geometric configuration of the microstructure.
