The energy balance model presented in Part I is applied here to data taken from the literature. Care was taken to choose well‐characterized systems to give a true test of the model's predictive character, rather than its ability to curve‐fit the data. The effects of concentration, particle size, strain rate, and temperature on the stress‐strain and dilatation curves are examined. Good agreement is seen for each of these variables. This predictive approach will allow the design of particulate composit…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
