Motivated by rate-independent stress-strain hysteresis observed in filled rubber, this article considers a scalar viscoelastic model in which the constitutive law is random and varies on a lengthscale which is small relative to the overall size of the solid. Using stochastic two-scale convergence as introduced by Bourgeat, Mikelic and Wright, we obtain the homogenized limit of the evolution, and demonstrate that under certain hypotheses, the homogenized model exhibits hysteretic behaviour which… Expand

Homogenization of the linearized ionic transport equations in random porous media.
In this paper we extend the homogenization results obtained in (G. Allaire, A. Mikelic, A. Piatnitski, J. Math. Phys. 51 (2010), 123103) for a system of partial differential equations describing theExpand


Non-periodic homogenization of infinitesimal strain plasticity equations
We consider the Prandtl-Reuss model of plasticity with kinematic hardening, aiming at a homogenization result. For a sequence of coefficient fields and corresponding solutions , we ask whether we canExpand
