Abstract

The self-consistent mechanics method has been widely used to estimate the elastic moduli of solids containing microvoids and inclusions. In the present paper, the elastic moduli of a microcracked composite material-a matrix containing inclusions and microcracks-are studied. The study focuses on the effect of inclusion anisotropy and the interaction between microcracks and inclusions. It is established that the effect of inclusions and microcracks on overall moduli is approximately decoupled. This method is also used to estimate the elastic moduli of a microcracked polycrystal.
