Two-dimensional mesoscopic analysis (meso-analysis) is applied to solids including microdefects such as microcracks or holes. For the problem of effective moduli of microdefrcted solids, various approximate schemes are introduced by using microcrack density and hole density for macro level parameter. Also, microcracks distributed in the parallel direction and random direction are considered. Several numerical studies using meso-analysis are carried out and the results are compared with several approximate schemes in order to show the validity of proposed meso-analysis.
