An Irreversible Thermodynamics Theory for Damage Mechanics of Solids
The entropy production is a non-negative quantity based on irreversible thermodynamics and thus serves as a basis for the systematic description of the irreversible processes occurring in a solid. InExpand
A thermodynamics based damage mechanics model for particulate composites
A micro-mechanical damage model is proposed to predict the overall viscoplastic behavior and damage evolution in a particle filled polymer matrix composite. Particulate composite consists of polymerExpand
A micromechanical model for effective elastic properties of particulate composites with imperfect interfacial bonds
Abstract A micromechanical model for effective elastic properties of particle filled acrylic composites with imperfect interfacial bonds is proposed. The constituents are treated as three distinctExpand
Failure Mechanisms in PMMA/ATH Acrylic Casting Dispersion
Acrylic casting dispersion is used to fabricate particulate composites such as poly-methyl methacrylate (PMMA) filled with a fine dispersion alumina trihydrate (ATH). This composite is subjected toExpand
Time Dependent Behavior of a Particle Filled Composite PMMA/ATH at Elevated Temperatures
Creep behavior of particle filled acrylic composite materials become a major concern when they are used at elevated temperatures. Therefore, for elevated temperature finite element simulations anyExpand
Influence of Interfacial Bond Strength on Fatigue Life and Thermo-Mechanical Behavior of a Particulate Composite: An Experimental Study
Experimental studies conducted on a particular cast acrylic composite demonstrate the significant influence of the interfacial bond strength between filler particles and the polymer matrix on theExpand
Experimental damage mechanics of microelectronic solder joints under fatigue loading
Fatigue damage is a progressive process of material degradation. The objective of this study is to experimentally qualify the damage mechanism in solder joints in electronic packaging under thermalExpand
Damage Coupled Viscoplastic Modeling of Particulate Composites With Imperfect Interphase
A micromechanical damage model is proposed to predict the overall viscoplastic behavior and damage evolution in particulate polymer composites with imperfect interfacial bonds. The constituents areExpand
