The recently developed variational framework for polarization methods in nanocomposites is applied to the determination of a lower-bound on the shear modulus of a nanocomposite with monosized, spherical inclusions. This bound explicitly accounts for linear elastic effects in the matrix-inclusion interface. Even if the polarization fields involved in its… CONTINUE READING
