Most materials used in contemporary life and industry are
heterogeneous (composites) and multicomponent, possessing a rich and
complex internal structure. This internal structure, or
plays a key role in understanding and controlling the continuum
behavior, or macroscopic, of a wide variety of materials. The modeling
process is a critical tool for scientists and engineers studying the
analysis and experimentation for the micromechanics and behavior of
"Heterogeneous Media" is a critical, in-depth edited survey of the
major topics surrounding the modeling and analysis of problems in
micromechanics of multicomponent systems, including conceptual and
practical aspects. The goal of this extensive and comprehensive survey
is to provide both specialists and nonspecialists with an
authoritative and interdisciplinary perspective of current ideas and
methods used for modeling heterogeneous materials behavior and their
Topics and Features:
* all chapters use interdisciplinary modeling perspective for
investigating heterogeneous media*Five chapters provide self-contained
discussions, with background provided*Focuses only upon most important
techniques and models, fully exploring micro-macro
interconnections*extensive introductory survey chapter on
micromechanics of heterogeneous media*microstructure characterization
via statistical correlation functions*micro-scale deformation of pore
space*wave fields and effective dynamical properties*modeling of the
complex production technologies for composite materials
The book is ideal for a general scientific and engineering audience
needing an in-depth view and guide to current ideas, methods and
