Mechanics of porous material

Hao Meng's picture

Hi all,

I am going simulate a plate of porous material (SiC) to evaluate its strengh.

Would someone share some knowledge on the mechanics of the porous materials.

Hi Hao,

write poroelasticity in the search bar of imechanica (top right corner). Then have a look at Suo's blog: "poroelasticity and diffusion in elastic solids". Here you can find some papers. For example "Foundamentals of poroelasticity", which is really very good.


If you want to model the a porous material plate with avialable constitutive model. I think the HELP document in ABAQUS is enough.

If you want to build the microstructure model and study its unknown mechanical properties, I think everyone is begin from the book: Cellular Solids by Gibson and Ashby.

Chen C., Lu T. J., Fleck N.A., 1999. Effect of imperfections on the yielding of two dimensional foams, J. Mech. Phys. Solids 47 2235-2272  is also recommended.



Study 5 minutes at least every day
