The eigenvalues for (a) the diamond-shaped inclusion, γ=60 deg and (b) the square-shaped inclusion, γ=90 deg; both for material elastic mismatch parameters α and β=α/4. The eigenvalues ωp(p=1,2) are associated with the symmetric stress field while δ1 is associated with the skew-symmetric stress field.

Comparison between the nondimensional constant Qω1 obtained in the present analysis using the integral method and that obtained by the body force method (7), for a diamond-shaped inclusion subjected to remote uniaxial tension. The material parameter β=α/4.

The comparison between the asymptotic solution (dashed-dashed line) and finite element prediction (solid line) of σθθ near interface junction R for the diamond-shaped inclusion subjected to a remote uniaxial tension σ. (a) r=0.003h and (b) r=0.06h; where r is the radial distance from the interface junction and h is half the major diagonal of the inclusion. The elastic mismatch parameters are α=0.5 and β=α/4.

The comparison between asymptotic solution (dashed-dashed line) and the finite element prediction (solid line) of σθθ near interface junction R for the diamond-shaped inclusion subject to a thermal load σo. (a) r=0.003h and (b) r=0.06h; where r is the radial distance from the interface corner and h is half the major diagonal of the inclusion. The elastic mismatch parameters are α=0.5 and β=α/4.
