In this paper, a new micromechanics model is developed to predict the effective propertiesand local fields of heterogeneous piezoelectric materials using the variational asymptoticmethod for unit cell homogenization (VAMUCH), a recently developed micromechanicsmodeling technique. Starting from...

Computational evaluation of effective stress relaxation behavior of polymer composites
11 Jul 2017 | Contributor(s):: Tian Tang, Sergio D. Felicelli
This paper presents a micromechanics model to characterize the effective stress relaxationstiffness of polymer composites. The linear viscoelastic behavior of polymer material wasmodeled by hereditary integral. The proposed model was established based on thevariational asymptotic method for unit...
