Construction of bounds on the effective shear modulus of isotropic multicomponent materials

Vu Lam Dong, Pham Duc Chinh

Abstract


In our previous paper, we constructed bounds on the effective bulk modulus of isotropic multicomponent composites using minimum energy principles and modified Hashin-Shtrikman polarization trial fields. In this paper, following the variational approach, we construct more sophisticated bounds on the effective shear modulus. Applications to particular models are presented.

Keywords


Isotropic multicomponent material; effective shear elastic modulus; three-point correlation parameters
