Closed Form Equations for Elasticity Properties for Anisotropic Materials

  1. Oct 29, 2014 #1
    Hi all,

    I'm wondering if anyone knows of a way to obtain elasticity properties (Ex, Ey, Ez, Gxy, Gxz, Gyz, vxy, vxz, vyz) from the terms of a 6x6 anisotropic stiffness or compliance matrix. I'm looking for a closed form solution, preferrably. I would think that there should be a closed form solution but I'm not 100% certain so if anyone believes that

    Here is a brief review of somewhat relevant threads on this site:

    And here is an example of the type of solution I'd like to see (note that this is for an orthotropic material):

    Thank you,

    Thanks for the post! Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?

    I'm sorry to say that I don't have any new info. Plenty of my colleagues are stumped by this problem as well.
