About this book


The micromechanics of random structure heterogeneous materials is a burgeoning multidisciplinary research area which overlaps the scientific branches of materials science, mechanical engineering, applied mathematics, technical physics, geophysics, and biology.

Micromechanics of Heterogeneous Materials features rigorous theoretical methods of applied mathematics and statistical physics in materials science of microheterogeneous media. The prediction of the behavior of heterogeneous materials by the use of properties of constituents and their microstructures is a central issue of micromechanics. This book is the first in micromechanics to provide a useful and effective demonstration of the systematic and fundamental research of the microstructure of the wide class of heterogeneous materials of natural and synthetic nature.

Micromechanics of Heterogeneous Materials is suitable as a reference for researchers involved in applied mathematics, physics, geophysics, materials science, and electrical, chemical, civil and mechanical engineering working in micromechanics of heterogeneous media. Micromechanics of Heterogeneous Materials is also appropriate as a textbook for advanced graduate courses.
