Asymptotic Approaches in Mechanics: New Parameters and Procedures. Appl. Mech. Rev., vol.56, No 1, pp.87110
.
This survey is devoted to recent achievements in the field of asymptotic approaches.
Here we consider the asymptotics in relation to completely new and sometimes unexpected parameters.
Some procedures leading to improvement and isolation of the essential analytical structure of the perturbation
series are presented. It has been also shown that a lot of relatively simple at first glance problems of the
perturbation theory is still far from a complete solution. Different asymptotic techniques to solve the same
problem and their influence on the results are briefly illustrated and discussed.

Asymptotic Determination of Effective Elastic Properties of Composite Materials
with Fibrous SquareShaped Inclusions. Eur. J. Mech. A/Solids, vol. 21, N 6, pp. 10191036
.
We propose an asymptotic approach for evaluating effective elastic properties of twocomponents periodic
composite materials with fibrous inclusions. We start with a nontrivial expansion of the input elastic
boundary value problem by ratios of elastic constants. This allows to simplify the governing equations
to forms analogous to the transport problem. Then we apply an asymptotic homogenization method, coming
from the original problem on a multiconnected domain to a so called cell problem, defined on a characterizing
unit cell of the composite. If the inclusions’ volume fraction tends to zero, the cell problem is solved by means o
f a boundary perturbation approach. When on the contrary the inclusions tend to touch each other we use an asymptotic
expansion by nondimensional distance between two neighbouring inclusions. Finally, the obtained “limiting” solutions
are matched via twopoint Padé approximants. As the results, we derive uniform analytical representations for effective
elastic properties. Also local distributions of physical fields may be calculated. In some partial cases the proposed
approach gives a possibility to establish a direct analogy between evaluations of effective elastic moduli and transport
coefficients. As illustrative examples we consider transversallyorthotropic composite materials with fibres of square
cross section and with square checkerboard structure. The obtained results are in good agreement with data of other authors.

New Trends in Asymptotic Approaches: Summation and Interpolation Methods. Applied Mechanics Review, V.54, No.1, pp.6992.
In this paper, we present in some detail new trends in application of asymptotic techniques to mechanical problems.
First we consider the various methods which give a possibility to extend a space of application of perturbation series and hence to omit their local character. [Download]

Effective coefficients for real nonlinear and fictitious linear
temperaturedependent periodic composites. International Journal of
NonLinear Mechanics, V.36, 187195.
It has been proved that the effective conductivities for nonlinear,
temperaturedependent composites and the socalled linear, fictitious
ones coincides. Due to the fact all homogeneous methods, exact or
approximate, developed previously for linear composites apply
immediately to nonlinear, temperaturedependent ones. Numerical example
illustrating the results obtained is provided. [Download]

Method of small and large delta in nonlinear dynamics – a comparative
analysis. Nonlinear Dynamics, V.23, 5766.
New asymptotic approaches for dynamical systems containing a power
nonlinear term x^{n}
are proposed and analysed. Two natural limiting cases are studied: n tends to the unit and n tends to infinity. In the first
case, the “small delta method” (SDM) is used and its applicability for
different dynamical
problems is outlined. For the second case a new asymptotic
approach is proposed (conditionally we call it “large delta method” 
LDM). Error estimations lead to the following conclusion: the LDM may be
used, even for small n, whereas
the SDM has a narrow application area. Both of the discussed approaches
overlap all values of the parameter n. [Download]

application to mechanical problems. Theoretical Foundations of Civil
Engineering, V.8, 371376.
Practically any physical or mechanical problem, which includes a
variable parameter epsilon, can be approximately solved as epsilon
approaches zero or infinity. How can this “limiting” information be used
in the study of the system at intermediate values of epsilon ? In some
instances the answer may be given by twopoint Padé approximants (PA).
However, one of the main shortages of PAs is related to the presence of
logarithmic or other complicated components in numerous asymptotic
expansions, which do not allow rational approximations. Such
difficulties are essential for the most of real mechanical problems. In
order to overcome them so called method of quasifractional approximants
(QA) may be used. It allows one to obtain approximate solutions in
closed analytical forms, valid for all values of governing parameters.
Here we introduce QAs for the ThomasFermi boundary value problem and
for effective transport properties of regular arrays of spheres. [Download]

No.2, 319327.
We study the effective heat conductivity of regular arrays of perfectly
conducting spheres embedded in a matrix with the unit conductivity.
Quasifractional approximants allow us to derive an approximate
analytical solution, valid for all values of the spheres volume
fraction. As the bases we use a perturbation approach for small spheres
and an asymptotic solution for large ones. Three different types of the
spheres space arrangement (simple, body and face centred cubic arrays)
are considered. Obtained results give a good agreement with numerical
data. [Download]
