Kolesnikova and Romanov (2004) obtained the critical radii of a spherical QD and a cylindrical quantum wire (QW) with uniform composition by considering the energy of nucleation of circular prismatic dislocation loops from a spherical QD and a cylindrical QW. We calculate the critical radii of the spherical alloyed QD at which the nucleation of a misfit prismatic dislocation (MD) loop (cf.

When κs and μs are equal to zero or κsr → 0, μrs → 0, the shear modulus reduces to the classical result. 3. , the composite material) and boundary conditions are specified at infinity. In the GSCM scheme, the interface stress effect is additionally considered at the interface between the inhomogeneity and matrix (cf. Eq. 13) where the superscript “e” denotes the effective medium. The boundary displacements and the nonvanishing displacement component for finding the bulk modulus of the composite are still given by Eqs.

Duan et al. −1 where σ¯ m = I(4s) + fI (P + Q − I(4s) ) : σ 0 . Eqs. 17) can be used to calculate the effective moduli of composites using MTM. If the inhomogeneity, matrix, and composite are isotropic, then the two strain concentration tensors M and H in Eq. 19) where M1 , M2 , H1 , and H2 are four scalars to be determined using MTM. With the use of Eq. 19), Eq. 16) decouples into κ¯ = κm + fI [(κI − κm )M1 + κm H1 ] [1 + fI (M1 − 1)]−1 , μ ¯ = μm + fI [(μI − μm )M2 + μm H2 ] [1 + fI (M2 − 1)] −1 .
