A systematic approach to understanding the role of microstructure on the mechanical response of complex multiphase materials is presented based on the "microstructure reconstruction" method of Yeong and Torquato. Low-order statistical correlation functions from an experimental microstructure are used to generate, using a simulated annealing algorithm, a spectrum of statistically similar microstructures that are then tested numerically. To illustrate the method, a ductile iron microstructure is… CONTINUE READING
