  1. Variational asymptotic micromechanics modeling of heterogeneous piezoelectric materials

    24 Jul 2017 | Contributor(s):: Tian Tang, Wenbin Yu

    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...

  2. Micromechanical investigations of polymer matrix composites with shape memory alloy reinforcement

  3. 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...
