Eshelby established the basis of the micromechanics theory for isotropic body. Afterward it has been extended for anisotropic cases by other researchers, and has become more sophisticated theory; for example, one can see more systematized theory in Mura’s book (left), and for the textbook written in Japanese, please see the right book that was written by Professors Toshio Mura and Tsutom Mori.

In this section, we introduce Eshelby’s ellipsoidal inclusion theory; the document was written by Tetsu Ichitsubo.
