Eshelby Equivalent Inclusion Method for Composites with Interface Effects
The Eshelby equivalent inclusion method is generalized to calculate the stress fields related to spherical inhomogeneities with two interface conditions depicted by the interface stress model and the linear-spring model. It is found that the method gives the exact results for the hydrostatic loading and very accurate results for a deviatoric loading. The method can be used to predict the effective properties of composites with the interface effects.
