Multiscale Modelling of Damage Processes in Polycrystalline Ceramic Porous Composites
Modelling of polycrystalline ceramics built up of different phases has been done within mesomechanical approach. Porous ceramics consists of matrix material and second phase – pores. Such material has non-linear and complex overall response to applied load. Modelling of porous polycrystalline material was performed by multiscale approach describing different phenomena occuring at different scales: micro- meso- and macro- with application of averaging procedure over the Representative Surface Element (RSE).
