A general applicable method is presented to determine conductivity properties of repetitive heterogeneous structures from the material properties of their constituents. The method is an extension of an analysis given by Rayleigh and is demonstrated to determine the global conductivity of a regularly perforated brass plate used as a flat-flame holder. The method is also applicable to other analogous transport properties in a wide variety of geometrical configurations.
