Micromechanics and Effective Properties of Elastic Particulate Composites

by J. W. Ju, Princeton Univ, Princeton, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Engineering Mechanics


A new micromechanical framework is proposed to investigate the effective mechanical properties of elastic particulate multiphase composites. Exact ensemble-volume averaged field equations for a representative volume element are presented to relate ensemble-volume averaged stresses, strains, volume fractions, eigenstrains, particle shapes and orientations, probabilistic density functions of particle locations, Eshelby's tensors, and elastic properties of constituent phases of a linear elastic particulate composite.
