Paper Title:
On the Size of Representative Volume Element in Elastic, Plastic, Thermoelastic and Permeable Random Microstructures
  Abstract

The Representative Volume Element (so-called RVE) is the corner stone of continuum mechanics. In this paper we examine the scaling to RVE in linear elasticity, finite elasticity, elasto-plasticity, thermoelasticity, and permeability of random composite materials.
