Abstract : The report briefly reviews work on the thermo-mechanical behavior of materials exhibiting nonhomogeneities (e.g. laminates, fiber-reinforced materials, inclusions, dislocations) with particular emphasis on the formulation of continuum theories that account for the nonhomogeneities. A complete listing of reports and publications that resulted from the research is included. (Author, modified-PL)
