In this study, analytical micromechanical models are developed for nanocomposites with both interface stretching and bending effects. First, the interior and exterior Eshelby tensors for a spherical nano-inclusion, with an interface defined by the Steigmann–Ogden (S–O) model, subjected to an arbitrary uniform eigenstrain are derived. Correspondingly, the stress/strain concentration tensors for a spherical nano-inhomogeneity subjected to arbitrary uniform far-field stress/strain loadings are…

Direct numerical simulation of complex nano‐structured composites, considering interface stretching and bending effects, using nano‐computational grains

Driven by the promising applications of nano‐composites, the Steigmann–Ogden (S‐O) interface stress model is used together with the classical Elasticity theory to model the effective mechanical

Nanoindentation hardness of a Steigmann–Ogden surface bounding an elastic half-space

Previous studies demonstrate that, for nanostructures under transverse bending, the effective Young modulus is appreciably greater (in magnitude) than that of the same elements under axial loads.

On the significance of coherent interface effects for embedded nanoparticles

To extend classical micro and nanomechanics of inclusions and inhomogeneities from bulk phase only to interface-featured multi-phase, we formulated a solution procedure for evaluating the

Surface stress effects on the bending properties of fcc metal nanowires

The major purpose of this work is to investigate surface stress effects on the bending behavior and properties of 100 /100 gold nanowires with both fixed/fixed and fixed/free boundary conditions. The

Size-Dependent Eshelby’s Tensor for Embedded Nano-Inclusions Incorporating Surface/Interface Energies

The classical formulation of Eshelby (Proc. Royal Society, A241, p. 376, 1957) for embedded inclusions is revisited and modified by incorporating the previously excluded surface/interface Stresses,
