Abstract

Cross-property relations that link rigorously the effective electrical conductivity (or dielectric constant) and the effective elastic moduli of two-phase, isotropic composite materials are discussed. The cross-property relations can be optimal in some cases, i.e., they are realized by particular microstructures. The relations are applied to specific two-phase composites as well as to cracked media.
