Abstract:

We explore the conceptualization of biaxial composite mediums through the process of homogenization. Biaxiality is found to arise when the component mediums undergoing homogenization present two non-collinear distinguished axes. Two possible sources of directionality in the component mediums are considered a topological and b electromagnetic. Examples of these are investigated by considering the homogenization of particulate components with a non-spherical topologies and isotropic electromagnetic properties and b uniaxial electromagnetic properties and spherical topologies.
