  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. Variational Asymptotic Modeling of Composite Dimensionally Reducible Structures

    09 Nov 2014 | | Contributor(s):: Wenbin Yu

    This is Prof. Yu's PhD dissertation. In this disseration, the variational asymptotic method has be used to provide a systematic, holistic, and rigorous approach to construct efficient yet accurate models for composite beams, plates, and shells.
