We have discovered a mistake in our original derivation related to the definition of the apparent conductivity due to orientation averaging. Equation (23) needs to be corrected to
χ˜(s)=《χ(s)T(s)》《T(s)》and the similar adjustment needs to be made in the two-dimensional case:
χ˜(s)=《χ(s)T(s)》2D《T(s)》2D

Finally, Equation (39) and the corresponding text becomes: ”…, define a certain indicator of the real microstructure k_{corr}, e.g. as a ratio of the modified and original partial temperature gradient concentration factors
kcorr=T˜cir(1)Tcir(1)now determined for circular inclusions.”
