Stress Channelling and Boundary Layers in Strongly Anisotropic Solids
Problems involving materials reinforced with strong fibers can be simplified very greatly by introducing the approximation that the fibers are inextensible. This leads to some striking results that at first do not appear to be correct, but which on closer examination are seen to be clear and forceful representations of real phenomena, phenomena which occur in highly anisotropic materials but not in the more familiar isotropic materials.
