We study the homogenization of a diffusion equation in an ε−periodic two- component composite in which the heat flow through the interface is proportional, by a function of order εγ, to the jump of the temperature field. We give an homogenization result for γ ≤ −1. The two cases γ < −1 and γ = −1 are treated separately and they lead to different limit problems. In the first case, we obtain a classical composite without barrier resistance, while in the second one the interfacial thermal barrier contributes to the description of the effective thermal conductivity of the homogenized material.

Abstract

We study the homogenization of a diffusion equation in an ε−periodic two- component composite in which the heat flow through the interface is proportional, by a function of order εγ, to the jump of the temperature field. We give an homogenization result for γ ≤ −1. The two cases γ < −1 and γ = −1 are treated separately and they lead to different limit problems. In the first case, we obtain a classical composite without barrier resistance, while in the second one the interfacial thermal barrier contributes to the description of the effective thermal conductivity of the homogenized material.
