    • Aspects of interface elasticity theory 

      Javili, A.; Ottosen, N. S.; Ristinmaa, M.; Mosler, J. (Sage Publications Ltd., 2018)
      Interfaces significantly influence the overall material response especially when the area-to-volume ratio is large, for instance in nanocrystalline solids. A well-established and frequently applied framework suitable for ...
    • Bounds on size-dependent behaviour of composites 

      Saeb, S.; Steinmann, P.; Javili, A. (Taylor & Francis, 2018)
      Computational homogenisation is a powerful strategy to predict the effective behaviour of heterogeneous materials. While computational homogenisation cannot exactly compute the effective parameters, it can provide bounds ...
    • Coherent energetic interfaces accounting for in-plane degradation 

      Esmaeili, A.; Javili, A.; Steinmann, P. (Springer Netherlands, 2016)
      Interfaces can play a dominant role in the overall response of a body. The importance of interfaces is particularly appreciated at small length scales due to large area to volume ratios. From the mechanical point of view, ...
    • Coupled thermally general imperfect and mechanically coherent energetic interfaces subject to in-plane degradation 

      Esmaeili, A.; Steinmann, P.; Javili, A. (Mathematical Sciences Publishers, 2017)
      To date, the effects of interface in-plane damage on the thermomechanical response of a thermally general imperfect (GI) and mechanically coherent energetic interface are not taken into account. A thermally GI interface ...
    • Micro-to-macro transition accounting for general imperfect interfaces 

      Javili, A.; Steinmann, P.; Mosler, J. (Elsevier B.V., 2017)
      The objective of this contribution is to establish a micro-to-macro transition framework to study the behavior of heterogeneous materials whereby the influence of interfaces at the microscale is taken into account. The ...
    • Non-coherent energetic interfaces accounting for degradation 

      Esmaeili, A.; Steinmann, P.; Javili, A. (Springer Verlag, 2017)
      Within the continuum mechanics framework, there are two main approaches to model interfaces: classical cohesive zone modeling (CZM) and interface elasticity theory. The classical CZM deals with geometrically non-coherent ...
    • A note on traction continuity across an interface in a geometrically non-linear framework 

      Javili, Ali (SAGE Publications, 2018)
      The objective of this contribution is to elaborate on the notion of “traction continuity” across an interface at finite deformations. The term interface corresponds to a zero-thickness model representing the interphase ...
