Advanced undergraduate students in Engineering and Materials Science should have a good understanding of the property of elasticity. This book will be a vital resource for the complete study of elasticity as it is the only book on the particular subject of anisotropic materials. Homogenous materials, such as rubber bands, are said to be isotropic, and the mechanics of isotropic materials are easy to study and their problems easy to solve. However, for the whole newclass of materials called composites, where two or more substances are combined for greater strength or superconductive properties, solving problems of the material's anisotropic elasticity are considerably more difficult. This book, however, is the first text to deal with the problems ofcomposite, or anisotropic materials and their elasticity.
