This ebook describes and discusses the homes of heterogeneous fabrics. The homes thought of comprise the conductivity (thermal, electric, magnetic), elastic moduli, dielectrical consistent, optical homes, mechanical fracture, and electric and dielectrical breakdown houses. either linear and nonlinear homes are thought of. The nonlinear homes contain people with constitutive non-linearities in addition to threshold non-linearities, similar to brittle fracture and dielectric breakdown. a prime aim of this e-book is to check primary methods to describing and predicting fabrics homes, specifically, the continuum mechanics technique, and people in line with the discrete versions. The latter types contain the lattice versions and the atomistic ways. The publication offers accomplished and recent theoretical and machine simulation research of fabrics' houses. ordinary experimental tools for measuring all of those houses are defined, and comparability is made among the experimental info and the theoretical predictions. quantity I covers linear houses, whereas quantity II considers non-linear and fracture and breakdown homes, in addition to atomistic modeling. This multidisciplinary ebook will entice utilized physicists, fabrics scientists, chemical and mechanical engineers, chemists, and utilized mathematicians.

Like every classical Greek texts on technological know-how, Euclid's works on optics first and foremost got here to the West generally via medieval Arabic texts and commentaries. whereas numerous Greek models of the Optika have been found and translated as early because the 16th century, checking out what can have been Euclid's unique has now not been effortless.

Example text

The significance of superrigid percolation networks will be discussed in Chapters 8 and 9.

To characterize anisotropic materials one needs more than two effective elastic moduli. For example, it can be shown that there are five effective elastic moduli for transversely isotropic fiber-reinforced two-phase materials, but only three of them are independent, and hence the remaining two moduli can be obtained from a combination of the three independent moduli which usually are the effective axial shear modulus µae , the effective bulk modulus Ke , and the effective transverse shear modulus µte .

Moreover, as we discuss in the subsequent chapters, percolation concepts are essential to correct interpretation of the experimental data for various properties of disordered materials. Thus, the purpose of this chapter is to review and discuss the essential concepts and ideas of fractal structures and percolation processes. We begin by describing and discussing the basic principles of fractal geometry, after which percolation processes and their essential features will be described. 1 Characterization of the Geometry: Self-Similar Fractal Microstructures Although it is possible to give a formal mathematical definition of a fractal system or set (Mandelbrot, 1982), an intuitive and less formal definition of a fractal system may be more useful: In a fractal structure the part is reminiscent of the whole.
