The elastic field around an elliptical inclusion in two dimensions is obtained. The result is then used to compute the effective moduli of a composite medium containing many randomly positioned and oriented elliptical objects. Two different self-consistent methods are described and the special cases of voids and rigid reinforcement are considered in detail.
