Material Properties of Mixtures

Conference paper


In recent years we face an increasing interest in material properties of mixtures. Of particular interest are mixtures displaying behaviour that neither of the pure constituents exhibit. In some cases such behaviour hinges on simple physical concepts, giving rise to universal macroscopic responses (i.e. independent of microscopic details).
