The intensive development of the theory of heterogeneous media in the past few decades is related to the constantly increasing area of application of composite materials in modern industry. Nowadays, composites successfully compete with traditional homogeneous constructive materials like metals, homopolymers, alloys, and ceramics. Modern nanotechnologies open the possibilities for dictating the microstructure of composite materials and for creating materials with prescribed physical properties. The direct synthesis of composite materials requires comprehensive knowledge of the influence of details of their microstructure on macroproperties.
