A two-phase material in which the phase boundaries are cylindrical surfaces is considered (fibrereinforced material). We consider such a material for which the precise details of phase geometry are not known, and investigate to what extent knowledge of the effective transverse thermal conductivity for one pair of phase conductivities determines the effective conductivity for a geometrically identical material with different phase conductivities. Also considered is whether or not one can hope to obtain narrow bounds on effective conductivity in terms of three-point correlation functions.
