Macrohomogeneity condition for strain gradient homogenization of periodic heterogeneous media with interfacial strong discontinuities

Abstract : The Hill macrohomogeneity condition is revisited in the context of strain gradient homogenization for heterogeneous materials prone to interfacial displacement jumps. The consideration of strain gradient effects is motivated by their use as a regularization method for strain-softening constitutive damage models leading to strain localization and displacement discontinuity. Starting from the weak form of the boundary value problem formulated at the microscopic level, a polynomial expression of the virtual velocity is adopted as the minimum microscopic kinematics consistent with the selected macroscopic kinematics of the strain gradient effective continuum. The effective volumetric and interfacial mesoscopic strains and stress measures for the effective substitution are obtained versus the microscopic strains and stresses. The Hill macrohomogeneity condition is successively formulated for continuous interfaces and discontinuous interfaces witnessing strong discontinuities. It highlights the expressions of the effective stress measures associated to the volumetric and interfacial behavior for both classical and higher-order effects.
