Abstract

This paper presents the derivation of a set of the novel closed-form solutions for the eigenstrain-induced elastic fields in two joined half-space solids with an interface of coupled dislocation-like and force-like imperfects. A model is proposed to characterize the interfacial discontinuity properties concerning displacements and stresses, which permits quantitative jumps of either the displacements or the stresses from one medium to the other. Basic Galerkin vectors in these two imperfectly joined half-spaces are derived based on the boundary conditions, and thus the elastic responses are obtained in explicit expressions. Taking advantage of the three-dimensional fast Fourier Transform algorithms for the convolution and correlation, the elastic fields subjected to one arbitrarily shaped inclusion or more can be efficiently and accurately evaluated. The influences of several types of interfaces, such as the perfectly bonded interface, the dislocation-like interface, and the force-like interface, on the stress and displacement transmissions are discussed. Cases for the elastic fields due to a cuboidal, a spherical, and an array of multiple cuboidal inclusions, are investigated.
