Structural Approach in Continuum Modeling of Damageable Particulate Composites

Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (ASHT, volume 46)


An experimental evaluation of mechanical behavior of damageable particulate composites is usually aimed at establishing relaxation, creep and constant strain-rate curves with subsequent deriving appropriate phenomenology more or less fitting the experimental data. The essence of internal structural mechanisms giving rise to the observed, often very complicated, effective behavior usually does not attract the particular attention of experimentalists, which remain quite satisfied with the constitutive relations obtained from experience.
