Thermal microstresses in composite materials

Ferdinando Auricchio, Mauro Ferrari

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


A procedure for estimating the thermal microstresses is presented, which is based on the joint use of homogenization theory and a generalization of Eshelby's inhomogeneity problem. An application is given for a biphase composite under uniform thermal load, and thus in condition of vanishing macrostresses.
