We overview some recent work, joint with xavier blanc and
pierre-louis lions, on the derivation of macroscopic densities of mechanical
energy from energies of microscopic lattices. A particular emphasis is laid on
the definition of the energy of some microscopic stochastic lattices, with
possible applications to the modelling of materials.
