This e-book describes and discusses the homes of heterogeneous fabrics. The homes thought of comprise the conductivity (thermal, electric, magnetic), elastic moduli, dielectrical consistent, optical houses, mechanical fracture, and electric and dielectrical breakdown homes. either linear and nonlinear homes are thought of. The nonlinear houses comprise people with constitutive non-linearities in addition to threshold non-linearities, equivalent to brittle fracture and dielectric breakdown. a primary aim of this booklet is to check primary ways to describing and predicting fabrics homes, specifically, the continuum mechanics process, and people in accordance with the discrete types. The latter types contain the lattice types and the atomistic methods. The booklet presents accomplished and recent theoretical and machine simulation research of fabrics' homes. ordinary experimental equipment for measuring all of those homes are defined, and comparability is made among the experimental facts and the theoretical predictions. quantity I covers linear homes, whereas quantity II considers non-linear and fracture and breakdown homes, in addition to atomistic modeling. This multidisciplinary e-book will attract utilized physicists, fabrics scientists, chemical and mechanical engineers, chemists, and utilized mathematicians.
