Abstract

We consider the asymptotic behaviour of the effective thermal conductivity of a two-phase composite obtained by introducing into an infinite homogeneous matrix a periodic set of inclusions of a different material and of size proportional to a positive parameter ε. We are interested in the case of imperfect thermal contact at the two-phase interface. Under suitable assumptions, we show that the effective thermal conductivity can be continued real analytically in the parameter ε around the degenerate value ε = 0, in correspondence of which the inclusions collapse to points. The results presented here are obtained by means of an approach based on functional analysis and potential theory and are also part of a forthcoming paper by the authors.
