An exact result for the macroscopic response of particle-reinforced neo-hookean solids

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Making use of an iterated homogenization procedure in finite elasticity, an exact and explicit result is derived for the macroscopic response of Neo-Hookean solids reinforced by a random and isotropic distribution of rigid particles. The key theoretical and practical features of the result are discussed in light of comparisons with recent approximations and full-field simulations.
