Description: A fiber model and simulation method are employed to investigate the mechanical response of planar fiber networks subjected to elongational deformation. The simulated responses agree qualitatively with numerous experimental observations. suggesting that such simulation methods may be useful for probing the relationships between fiber properties and interactions and the behavior of fiber networks. Quantitative discrepancies between experiments and simulations are attributed in pan to computational limitations, in addition to potential shortcomings in the underlying fiber model.
