In this Note, we consider a stochastic network of interacting points to which we associate an energy. We study the variational convergence of such an energy when the typical distance of the network goes to zero. We prove that the limit energy can be written as an integral functional, whose energy density is deterministic, hyperelastic and frame-invariant. This derivation allows us in particular to obtain a continuous energy density associated to cross-linked polymer networks. To cite this article: R. Alicandro et al., C. R. Acad. Sci. Paris, Ser. I 345 (2007).

Dans cette Note, nous considérons un réseau stochastique de points en interaction auquel nous associons une énergie. Nous étudions alors la convergence variationnelle de cette énergie lorsque la distance caractéristique du réseau tend vers zéro. Nous démontrons que lʼénergie limite sʼécrit comme lʼintégrale dʼune densité dʼénergie déterministe, hyperélastique et objective. Cette dérivation couvre en particulier des modèles de réseau de polymères réticulés. Pour citer cet article : R. Alicandro et al., C. R. Acad. Sci. Paris, Ser. I 345 (2007).
