The linearized theory of elasticity has been the subject of several treatises. For a detailed treatment we refer to the book by Sokolnikoff [1.5]. The basic equations are, however, briefly summarized in Sections 2.1–2.3 for the purpose of reference. As a preliminary to the definition of the effective modulus theory some exact solutions for homogeneous elastic bodies of arbitrary shape are given in Section 2.4.
