We show that effective-medium theory gives an excellent description of regular lattices when nearest-neighbor central-force springs are present with probability p. Effective-medium theory shows that all the elastic constants go to zero at pcen=dpc where d is the dimension and pc is the effective-medium estimate of the ordinary percolation threshold.
