||Effective medium theory for elastic composites||
Up: Reproducible Documents
The theoretical foundation of a variant on effective medium theories for
elastic constants of composites is presented and discussed. The connection between this
approach and the methods of Zeller and Dederichs, Korringa, and
Gubernatis and Krumhansl is elucidated. A review of the known relationships
between the various effective medium theories and rigorous bounding methods
for elastic constants is also provided.
