Constitutive modeling of hyperelastic solids reinforced by spheroidal particles under large deformations

This paper presents a homogenization-based constitutive model for the mechanical behavior of particle-reinforced elastomers with random microstructures subjected to finite deformations. The model is based on a recently developed homogenization method (Avazmohammadi and Ponte Castaneda 2013; J. Elasticity 112, 1828–1850) for two-phase, hyperelastic composites, and is able to directly account for the shape, orientation, and concentration of the particles.

Dear All

Looking for a methodology to convert shear stress-shear strain data from a torsion test in large deformations into true strain-true stress curve, I found two schools of thought:
