The present paper reconsiders the inhomogeneity problem via an elastic modulus perturbation approach. By using the eigenstrain concept, the inhomogeneity problem is converted to a series of inclusion problems in the present modulus perturbation procedure. A homogeneous state is chosen as reference state or the 0th order solution. Some extensions of the modulus perturbation approach by example are also discussed in the paper.
