On characterizing the set of possible effective tensors of composites: The variational method and the translation method. (English) Zbl 0751.73041
This comprehensive paper is a sort of synthesis of various aspects of bounding techniques for conduction in composites and the elastic properties of composites. Bounds for dynamic problems in the quasi-static limit are also investigated, thus including the viscoelastic behaviour. Particularly, much attention is devoted to the Hashin-Shtrikman bounds and the translation method of Tartar and Murat and Lurie and Cherkaev. Relations between different techniques are carefully discussed. The dual approach is often exploited in finding bounds. Having formulated the polarization problem, it is shown that for layered materials this problem can be easily solved. The paper is written in a rather abstract way and will certainly appeal to mathematically minded researchers working on the mechanics of composites.
