Aim of course

Presentation of modern methods in multiscale micromechanics and homogenization theory, and of their application in the engineering and material sciences.

Subject of course

  • Basis of continuum micromechanics - representation volume element - stress and strain averages rules

  • Mori-Tanaka and self-consistent schemes
  • higher-order averages-upscaling of strength
  • influence tensor concept multiscale poro-mechanics and thermo-mechanics
  • upscaling of transport properties
  • applications in civil and biomedical engineering
