The behavior of anisotropic materials has been the object of much recent research® The high strength to weight ratio needed by aerospace structures has necessitated the use of exotic, composite materials which generally exhibit anisotropic behavior® These materials cannot be fully utilized unless analytical techniques are used which take maximum advantage of their anisotropic behavior.
