PSi Young’s modulus as function of porosity. Numerical results for uniform displacements (empty squares) and uniform traction (full squares) conditions and interpolations (solid line) representing the upper and lower bounds of the homogenized Young’s modulus as function of porosity. Curves are always underneath the Voigt theoretical upper bound (dashed line).
