This booklet describes and discusses the houses of heterogeneous fabrics. The homes thought of comprise the conductivity (thermal, electric, magnetic), elastic moduli, dielectrical consistent, optical homes, mechanical fracture, and electric and dielectrical breakdown houses. either linear and nonlinear homes are thought of. The nonlinear homes contain people with constitutive non-linearities in addition to threshold non-linearities, comparable to brittle fracture and dielectric breakdown. a first-rate aim of this e-book is to match primary methods to describing and predicting fabrics houses, particularly, the continuum mechanics procedure, and people according to the discrete versions. The latter types contain the lattice types and the atomistic ways. The booklet offers complete and recent theoretical and laptop simulation research of fabrics' homes. normal experimental equipment for measuring all of those houses are defined, and comparability is made among the experimental facts and the theoretical predictions. quantity I covers linear homes, whereas quantity II considers non-linear and fracture and breakdown houses, in addition to atomistic modeling. This multidisciplinary publication will attract utilized physicists, fabrics scientists, chemical and mechanical engineers, chemists, and utilized mathematicians.

In particular, many materials have very rough surface with the roughness seemingly following a very complex pattern which, however, is amenable to precise characterization. In recent years, it has become clear that characterizing surface roughness will go a long way toward providing us with a much better understanding of materials’ microstructure and hence their eﬀective properties. In particular, materials’ rough surfaces are often directly linked with the non-linear phenomena that will be described in Volume II, and therefore we will describe their characterization and modelling in Volume II.
2 can be bicontinuous in either bond or site percolation. However, for 3D systems, neither pc < 1/2 nor phase-inversion symmetry is a necessary condition for bicontinuity. Two-dimensional materials are much more diﬃcult to be made bicontinuous. In many respects, randomly disordered two-phase materials correspond to site percolation systems. 1), we may conclude that no 2D randomly-disordered material can be bicontinuous. 1. , random assignment of bonds or sites as insulating, may not be suitable for many applications, because such a procedure generates, 31 in addition to the sample-spanning cluster, isolated ﬁnite clusters as well.
In addition to deriving the eﬀective macroscopic equations and obtaining their solution by numerical calculations, one may also derive exact results in terms of rigorous upper and lower bounds to the properties of interest. Hence, powerful tools have been developed for deriving accurate upper and lower bounds and estimates. Finally, various approximations, such as the mean-ﬁeld and eﬀective-medium approximations, have also been developed in the context of the continuum models. We will describe most of these theoretical approaches throughout both this book and Volume II.
