Abstract : Theoretical methods and results are reviewed in the field of prediction of bulk mechanical properties of heterogeneous media, in terms of mechanical properties and geometry of constituents. The term heterogeneous medium is here understood as a mixture of discrete homogeneous phases which form regions that are large enough to be regarded as continua. The mechanical behavior of each phase is known in terms of stress-strain relations and at phase interfaces usual continuity conditions on stress vectors and displacements (or velocities) are specified.
