Assume that the local compliance tensor of an elastic composite in two space dimensions is equal to a rank-one tensor plus a null-Lagrangian (there is only one symmetric one in 2D). The purpose of this paper is to prove that the effective compliance tensor has the same representation: rank-one plus the null-Lagrangian. This statement generalizes the well… CONTINUE READING
