Basic application-related aspects of two important groups of approaches to
continuum micromechanics of inhomogeneous materials are presented, viz., mean
field schemes and methods based on discrete microstructures.
Emphasis is put on handling both thermomechanical and thermal conduction
On this basis some issues and applications of continuum micromechanics are
They comprise incremental Mori-Tanaka methods for finite strains, modeling of
the thermomechanical and thermal conduction behavior of diamond particle
reinforced metal matrix composites, windowing estimates for the macroscopic
linear responses of inhomogeneous media, and modeling of the mechanical
behavior of cellular materials.
