Large-scale deterministic simulations are performed in order to observe the band gap formation in composite models having quasi-random fiber arrangements. Composite plates are modeled in two-dimensions with various unidirectional fiber arrangements. The quasi-random fiber arrangements can be qualified as essentially regular with slight randomness. Simulation results are compared with the corresponding case of ideally regular fiber arrangement. The most interesting observation is that the slight randomness in the fiber arrangements enhances the band gap phenomenon by introducing a few secondary band gaps adjacent to the primary band gap. An attempt is made to relate the band gap characteristics to the statistical parameters of fiber arrangements.
