The problem of an unbounded elastic matrix containing any number of elastic inclusions is considered. The inclusions can have any radii and elastic moduli. Furthermore, the spacing of the inclusions can be arbitrary. The solution for the cases of uniaxial tension and in-plane bending is found by the Schwarz alternating method. Graphical results are presented for a number of examples.
