We introduce a simplified model for a multi-material made up of two elastic bodies connected by a strong thin material layer whose stiffness grows as 1. The model is obtained by identifying the Γ-limit of the stored strain energy functional of the physical problem when the thickness of the intermediate layer tends to zero. The intermediate layer behaves as(More)

We show how to capture the gradient concentration of the solutions of Dirichlet-type problems subjected to large sources of order 1 √ ε concentrated on an ε-neighborhood of a hypersurface of the domain. To this end we define the gradient Young-concentration measures generated by sequences of finite energy and establish a very simple characterization of(More)
An elementary situation in welding involves the perfect assembly of two adherents and a strong adhesive occupying a thin layer. The bulk energy density of the hyperelastic adherents grows superlinearly while the one of the pseudo-plastic adhesive grows linearly with a stiffness of the order of its thickness ε. We propose a simplified but accurate model by(More)
