  • models of composite materials. In this paper, we specialize to the idealized model of hexagonal arrays of hmnitely long, aligned cylinders in a matrix (a model of a fiber-reinforced material) or a thin-plate composite consisting of hexagonal arrays of disks in a matrix. Thus, one need only consider two-dimensional elasticity, i.e., either plane-strain or plane-stress elasticity. This paper examines a variety of cases in which the inclusions are either stiffer or weaker than the matrix for a… CONTINUE READING
