Abstract

We review some recent advances in modeling of elastic composites and polycrystals by spring networks. In the first part, spring network models of anti-plane elasticity, planar classical elasticity, and planar micropolar elasticity are developed. In the second part, applications to progressive breakdown in elastic-brittle matrix-inclusion composites and aluminum sheets are discussed.
