Conference paper


A vast amount of bibliography has been devoted to study the macroscopic behavior of composites due to the influence of the microstructure. From a practical viewpoint, this is of limited interest since the macroscopic behavior can be easily determined by experiments. The state of stress and strain in a structural element can differ significantly if the loading conditions in the experiment are not properly simulated.
