Elastic and Viscoelastic Behavior of Composites

ROBERT A. SHICK and HATSUO ISHIDA

Contents

8.1 Viscoelastic Properties

8.2 Isotropic Multiphase Materials

8.3 Nonisotropic Multiphase Materials

Composite materials have come into prominence because their properties can be made to accentuate the desirable attributes and to overcome the limitations of their individual constituents. However, the ability to accurately predict the elastic and viscoelastic properties of multiphase materials has been restricted thus far to certain special cases. There are various theories which give good agreement with data under different conditions, and it is the intent of this chapter to highlight those which enhance the fundamental understanding of the composite ...
