Abstract

We derive an exact formula for the volume fraction of an inclusion in a body when the inclusion and the body are linearly elastic materials with the same shear modulus. Our formula depends on an appropriate measurement of the displacement and traction around the boundary of the body. In particular, the boundary conditions around the boundary of the body must be such that they mimic the body being placed in an infinite medium with an appropriate displacement applied at infinity.
