An approximate constitutive relation is derived for a power-law viscous material stiffened by rigid spherical inclusions using a differential self-consistent analysis. This approach consists of two parts: the formulation of a self-consistent differential equation, and the solution of an associated kernel problem, a nonlinear boundary value problem for an isolated inclusion in an infinite power-law viscous matrix.
