  • In the context of elasticity theory, rigidity theorems allow one to derive global properties of a deformation from local ones. This paper presents a new asymptotic version of rigidity, applicable to elastic bodies with sufficiently stiff components arranged into fine parallel layers. We show that strict global constraints of anisotropic nature occur in the limit of vanishing layer thickness, and give a characterization of the class of effective deformations. The optimality of the scaling… CONTINUE READING
