Randomly generate RVE

You want to study the influence of micro-structural parameters on the macroscopic response of your RVE? Homtools provides two examples of random generation of simple geometry of RVE (voronoi cells and spherical inclusions). Starting from these examples you can developed your own RVE generator. Feel free to share our experiences with us: we will add your development to the sources.

RVE generation is avaible in the part module of Abaqus CAE: Plug-ins->Homtools

Here is the GUI interface for 2D random spherical inclusions
