Most of the studies are based on experimental results. This paper reports a numerical study of elasticity modulus of binary fiber composite materials. In this study, we use binary fiber composite materials model which consists of materials of types A and B. The composite is simplified into compound of non-interacting parallel sub-fibers. Each sub-fiber is modeled as <em>N<sub>s</sub></em> point of masses in series configuration. Two adjacent point of mass is connected with spring constant <em>k</em> (related and proportional to Young modulus <em>E</em>), where it could be <em>k</em><sub>AA</sub>, <em>k</em><sub>AB</sub>, or k<sub>BB</sub> depend on material type of the two point of masses. Three possible combinations of spring constant are investigated: (a) [<em>k</em><sub>AB</sub> < min(<em>k</em><sub>AA</sub>, <em>k</em><sub>BB</sub>)], (b) [min(<em>k</em><sub>AA</sub>, <em>k</em><sub>BB</sub>) < <em>k</em><sub>AB</sub> < max(<em>k</em><sub>AA</sub>, <em>k</em><sub>BB</sub>)], and (c) [max(<em>k</em><sub>AA</sub>, <em>kBB</em>) < <em>k</em><sub>AB</sub>]. The combinations are labeled as composite type I, II, and III, respectively. It is observed that only type II fits most the region limited by Voight and Reuss formulas.}, number={1}, journal={KnE Engineering}, author={Viridi, Sparisoma}, year={2016}, month={Sep.} }
