This project analyzes the effective conductivity of a material where the background conductivity of a substrate material is enhanced by the presence of nonconducting embedded particles. The averaged effective conductivity is derived using homogenization. The averaging is applied to several test examples, then to the material with particles embedded. The main interest is how various particle arrangements effect the overall conductivity.
