We study the symmetrised rank-one convex hull of monoclinic-I martensite (a twelve-variant material) in the context of geometrically-linear elasticity. We construct sets of T3s, which are (non-trivial) symmetrised rank-one convex hulls of 3-tuples of pairwise incompatible strains. Moreover we construct a five-dimensional continuum of T3s and show that its intersection with the boundary of the symmetrised rank-one convex hull is four-dimensional. We also show that there is another kind of monoclinic-I martensite with qualitatively different semi-convex hulls which, so far as we know, has not been experimentally observed. Our strategy is to combine understanding of the algebraic structure of symmetrised rank-one convex cones with knowledge of the faceting structure of the convex polytope formed by the strains.

The limiting behaviour of a one‐dimensional discrete system is studied by means of Γ‐convergence. We consider a toy model of a chain of atoms. The interaction potentials are of Lennard‐Jones type and periodically or stochastically distributed. The energy of the system is considered in the discrete to continuum limit, i.e. as the number of atoms tends to infinity. During that limit, a homogenization process takes place. The limiting functional is discussed, especially with regard to fracture. Secondly, we consider a rescaled version of the problem, which yields a limiting energy of Griffith's type consisting of a quadratic integral term and a jump contribution. The periodic case can be found in [8], the stochastic case in [6,7].
