Hello, I'm studying anisotropic elasticity. One of the books I'm using is Lekhnitskii's. The book presents the general equations of the theory of elasticity for an orthotropic body as follows:
The Attempt at a Solution
However, when I combine the strain-displacement equations and the Hook's Law and then replace them into the equilibrium equations I cannot get the same expression. My reasoning looks like this (for example, the first equation of the system):
A11.Uxx + A12.Vyx + A13.Wzx + A66.(Uyy + Vyx) + A55.(Wzx + Uzz) = 0
Obviously, I'm doing something wrong. What is my mistake?
Many thanks for your kind help.
