Abstract
We consider the strong-property-fluctuation theory (SPFT) for linear bianisotropic mediums based on ellipsoidal distribution topology. Implementations of the SPFT are presented for three choices of the covariance function. The SPFT is then applied to estimate the effective constitutive parameters of two types of homogenised composite medium: a chiroferrite medium and a reciprocal biaxial bianisotropic medium. The influences of the component phase topology and orientation, correlation length and covariance function are explored. The SPFT estimates of the constitutive parameters are compared with those calculated using the Incremental Maxwell Garnett and the Bruggeman homogenisation formalisms.
