about this item
Statistical descriptors that can be used to describe the morphology and the microstructure-properties relationship. A comprehensive study has been performed for the use of these correlation functions for the reconstruction and homogenization in nano-composite materials. Statistical functions are measured from different techniques such as microscopy (SEM or TEM), small X-Ray scattering (SAXS) and Monte Carlo simulations. Higher order correlation functions must be calculated or measured to increase the precision of the statistical continuum approach.
In this book, statistical reconstructed RVE and FEM approach have been used to calculate effective mechanical and thermal properties of heterogeneous materials. we have gathered all the relevant information and necessary concept for reader. In most cases, reference articles have been published by authors of this book in the last five years. Increase PC's performance is one of the real reason that motivate us to work on hybrid technique (FEM homogenization for Statistical RVE) for homogenization of heterogeneous materials.
