Contents:
Computational homogenisation for non-linear heterogeneous solids / V.G. Kouznetsova, M.G.D. Geers and W.A.M. Brekelmans -- Two-scale asymptotic homogenisation-based finite element analysis of composite materials / Qi-Zhi Xiao and Bhushan Lal Karihaloo -- Multi-scale boundary element modelling of material degradation and fracture / G.K. Sfantos and M.H. Aliabadi -- Non-uniform transformation field analysis : a reduced model for multiscale non-linear problems in solid mechanics / Jean-Claude Michel and Pierre Suquet -- Multiscale approach for the thermomechanical analysis of hierarchical structures / Marek J. Lefik, Daniela P. Boso and Bernhard A. Schrefler -- Recent advances in masonry modelling : micromodelling and homogenisation / Paulo B. Lourenco -- Mechanics of materials with self-similar hierarchical microstructure / R.C. Picu and M.A. Soare.
Summary: This unique volume presents the state of the art in the field of multiscale modeling in solid mechanics, with particular emphasis on computational approaches. For the first time, contributions from both leading experts in the field and younger promising researchers are combined to give a comprehensive description of the recently proposed techniques and the engineering problems tackled using these techniques. The book begins with a detailed introduction to the theories on which different multiscale approaches are based, with regards to linear Homogenisation as well as various nonlinear approaches. It then presents advanced applications of multiscale approaches applied to nonlinear mechanical problems. Finally, the novel topic of materials with self-similar structure is discussed.
