The overall aim of this book is to provide a rigorous means to characterize the microstructure and properties of heterogeneous materials that can simultaneously yield results of practical utility. A unified treatment of both microstructure and properties is emphasized. The book is divided into two parts. Part I deals with the quantitative characterization of the microstructure of heterogeneous via theoretical, computer-simulation and imaging techniques. Emphasis is placed on theoretical methods. Part II treats a wide variety of effective properties of heterogeneous materials and how they are linked to the microstructure. This is accomplished using rigorous methods. Wherever possible,…
