Abstract

Many effective medium approximations for effective conductivity are elaborated for matrix composites made from isotropic continuous matrix and isotropic inclusions associated with simple shapes such as circles or spheres, ... In this paper, we focus specially on the effective conductivity of the isotropic composites containing the disorderly oriented anisotropic inclusions. We aim to replace those inhomogeneities by simple equivalent circular (spherical) isotropic inclusions with modified conductivities. Available simple approximations for the equivalent circular (spherical)-inclusion media then can be used to estimate the effective conductivity of the original composite. The equivalent-inclusion approach agrees well with numerical extended finite elements results.
