Nonuniform Transformation Field Analysis

Abstract : The exact description of the overall behavior of composites with nonlinear dissipative phases requires an infinity of internal variables. Approximate models involving only a finite number of those can be obtained by considering a decomposition of the microscopic anelastic strain field on a finite set of transformation fields. The Transformation Field Analysis of Dvorak [Proc. R. Soc. Lond. A 437 (1992) 311] corresponds to piecewise uniform transformation fields. The present theory considers nonuniform transformation fields. Comparison with numerical simulations shows the accuracy of the proposed model.
