The dependence relation between the macroscopic effective property and the microstructure of interpenetrating multiphase composites is investigated in this paper. The effective elastic moduli of such composites cannot be calculated from conventional micromechanics methods based on Eshelby's tensor because an interpenetrating phase cannot be extracted as dispersed inclusions. Employing the concept of connectivity, a micromechanical cell model is presented for estimating the effective elastic...[Show more]
