Presents Concepts That Can Be Used in Design, Processing, Testing, and Control of Composite Materials
Introduction to the Micromechanics of Composite Materials weaves together the basic concepts, mathematical fundamentals, and formulations of micromechanics into a systemic approach for understanding and modeling the effective material behavior of composite materials. As various emerging composite materials have been increasingly used in civil, mechanical, biomedical, and materials engineering, this textbook provides students with a fundamental understanding of the mechanical behavior of composite materials and prepares them for further research and development work with new composite materials.
Students will understand from reading this book:
The basic concepts of micromechanics such as RVE, eigenstrain, inclusions, and in homogeneitiesHow to master the constitutive law of general composite materialHow to use the tensorial indicial notation to formulate the Eshelby problemCommon homogenization methods
The content is organized in accordance with a rigorous course. It covers micromechanics theory, the microstructure of materials, homogenization, and constitutive models of different types of composite materials, and it enables students to interpret and predict the effective mechanical properties of existing and emerging composites through microstructure-based modeling and design. As a prerequisite, students should already understand the concepts of boundary value problems in solid mechanics. Introduction to the Micromechanics of Composite Materials is suitable for senior undergraduate and graduate students.
