Abstract:Microstructural randomness is one of the most basic characteristics of nearly all solid materials and plays a key role in the prediction of their macroscopic properties. Evidently, any material that displays heterogeneity on a micro scale has properties depending on the scale of approximating continuum. The key issue, which commonly arises when dealing with structure-property relations of such materials, is the validity of separation of scales of the continuum mechanical model d < L_{RVE}
