The equivalent inclusion method is proposed to solve steady-state heat conduction problems in composites. This method is analogous to the J. D. Eshelby's equivalent inclusion method in elasticity. Then, the thermal conductivities of aligned and misoriented short-fiber composites are obtained based on the equivalent inclusion method. Finally, the validity of the present method is discussed by comparing it with the other models.
