Paper Title:
A Versatile Micromechanical Model for Estimating the Effective Properties of Isotropic Composite Materials
  Abstract

This work is concerned with a versatile and efficient model for estimating the effective moduli of isotropic composites consisting of isotropic phases whose microstructure may be of matrix-inclusion type, disordered or intermediate. This extended version of generalized self-consistent model (GSCM) is built by inserting a composite sphere embedded in an infinite unknown effective medium has the core made of the unknown effective medium and coated by the constituent phases. The volume fraction of the constituent phases in this composite sphere is the characteristic parameter of the relevant microstructure. By imposing the an energy equivalency condition, the equations thus obtained to estimate the effective bulk and shear moduli involve the microstructural parameter which turns out to be capable of describing in some sense how far a microstructure is from the host matrix/inclusion morphology
