A version of the theory that has been reformulated to maximize computational efficiency is also provided. The effective properties and the nonlinear deformation, damage, and failure behavior of continuous and discontinuous composites in the longitudinal and transverse directions are examined as applications, as are effective yield surfaces and the behavior of woven composites. Chapter 6 develops the HFGMC micromechanics theory. This relies on a higher-order displacement field to provide higherfidelity local field predictions in the composite constituents.

Thermal or mechanical); see Dowling (1999). A prerequisite for meaningful assessment of component (or composite material) durability and life, and consequently design of structural components (or composite materials), is the ability to estimate the stresses and strains occurring within a loaded structure (or composite). Because constitutive material models provide the required mathematical link between stress and strain, the selection and characterization of an appropriate constitutive model is required before a material can be used in design.

4) requires only a model for εIkl. , Skrzypek and Hetnarski, 1993; Lemaitre, 2001; Yip, 2005). A critical issue when modeling composite materials using micromechanics is the need for multiaxial constitutive models, as the in-situ stress state (that is, the stress state within the constituent phases of the composite) is always multiaxial and the history is usually non-proportional. Most inelastic models struggle under these circumstances and are not typically validated under multiaxial loading scenarios.
