Two-well linearization for solid-solid phase transitions

  title={Two-well linearization for solid-solid phase transitions},
  author={Elisa Davoli and Manuel Friedrich},
  journal={arXiv: Analysis of PDEs},
In this paper we consider nonlinearly elastic, frame-indifferent, and singularly perturbed two-well models for materials undergoing solid-solid phase transitions in any space dimensions, and we perform a simultaneous passage to sharp-interface and small-strain limits. Sequences of deformations with equibounded energies are decomposed via suitable Caccioppoli partitions into the sum of piecewise constant rigid movements and suitably rescaled displacements. These converge to limiting partitions…

Nonlinear and Linearized Models in Thermoviscoelasticity
We consider a quasistatic nonlinear model in thermoviscoelasticity at a finite-strain setting in the Kelvin-Voigt rheology where both the elastic and viscous stress tensors comply with the principle
Gradient Polyconvexity and Modeling of Shape Memory Alloys
We show existence of an energetic solution to a model of shape memory alloys in which the elastic energy is described by means of a gradient-polyconvex functional. This allows us to show existence of

Two-well rigidity and multidimensional sharp-interface limits for solid–solid phase transitions
We establish a quantitative rigidity estimate for two-well frame-indifferent nonlinear energies, in the case in which the two wells have exactly one rank-one connection. Building upon this novel
A Sharp-Interface Limit for a Two-Well Problem in Geometrically Linear Elasticity
AbstractIn the theory of solid-solid phase transitions the deformation of an elastic body is determined via a functional containing a nonconvex energy density and a singular perturbation. We study

We are interested in the cubic-to-tetragonal phase transition in a shape memory alloy. We consider geometrically linear elasticity. In this framework, Dolzmann and Müller have shown that the only
Energy scaling and branched microstructures in a model for shape-memory alloys with SO(2) invariance
Domain branching near the boundary appears in many singularly perturbed models for microstructure in materials and was first demonstrated mathematically by Kohn and Muller for a scalar problem
Griffith energies as small strain limit of nonlinear models for nonsimple brittle materials
We consider a nonlinear, frame indifferent Griffith model for nonsimple brittle materials where the elastic energy also depends on the second gradient of the deformations. In the framework of free
On the derivation of linear elasticity from atomistic models
This approach generalizes a recent result of Braides, Solci and Vitali (2) and studies mass spring models with full nearest and next-to-nearest pair interactions, and drops the assumption that atoms are allowed to interact only along the associated minimum problems.
Derivation of a Linearised Elasticity Model from Singularly Perturbed Multiwell Energy Functionals
Linear elasticity can be rigorously derived from finite elasticity under the assumption of small loadings in terms of Gamma-convergence. This was first done in the case of one-well energies with
Rigidity and gamma convergence for solid‐solid phase transitions with SO(2) invariance
The singularly perturbed two‐well problem in the theory of solid‐solid phase transitions takes the form $$I_{\varepsilon}[u] = \int\limits^{}_{\Omega} {1 \over {\varepsilon}} W(\nabla u) +
