Some Related Methods in Micromechanics of Random Structure Composites

This charter is organized as follows. In Section 9.1 the new combined MEFMperturbation method is proposed. We demonstrate in Section 9.2 and 9.3 that the MEFM includes, as particular cases the well-known methods of mechanics of strongly heterogeneous media (such as the effective medium and differential methods and some others, see Section 9.4). Finally, in Section 9.5 we employ the proposed explicit representations and some related ones for numerical estimations of effective elastic moduli of composites with inclusions of both spheroidal and nonspheroidal shapes.
