Homogenization in the Modelling of Volume-Controlled Elastic Structures

Homogenization in the Modelling of Volume-Controlled Elastic Structures The background for this article is the question of modification of the geometric configuration of an elastic structure by means of "volume"-type actuation. In this actuation mode stresses are applied to the elastic body by injection/extraction of a fluid into, or from, a large number of vacuoles in the elastic "matrix" material. Previous articles by the author, and others, have examined this process and studied its effectiveness in the context of a "naive" continuous model. The present paper develops modified models in the two-dimensional case by applying the "multiple scales" homogenization method to elastic bodies with increasingly small and numerous vacuoles arranged in a rectangularly periodic structure. The process leads to a modification of the naive model potentially useful in future elastic system control research. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Applied Mathematics and Optimization Springer Journals
