Abstract:

This article presents a constitutive study of a two-phase composite based on the authors previous paper Zhu H, Rish III JW, Dass WC. Constitutive relation for two-phase particular materials. I elastic binder. Computers and Geotechnics 1997203303-23 with inclusionsparticles in the composite behaving elastically, but the bindermatrix being viscoelastic of Maxwell type. The basic-cell technique and binder-contact laws are employed in deriving the stress-strain equations in the integral representation. It is shown that the overall stress-strain response of this two-phase composite can be described by an equivalent multi-axial visco-elastic model of four-Maxwell-elements in parallel. The application of this study is aimed at providing a mechanicsphysics based justification for employing the multi-Maxwell-elements model in characterizing asphalt concrete and other related issues.
