On the shape of effective inclusion in the Maxwell homogenization scheme for anisotropic elastic composites

• Maxwell’s scheme is re-written in terms of the compliance and stiffness contribution tensors. • It is shown that Maxwell scheme always produces symmetric tensors of elastic constants. • It is shown that the shape of the effective inclusion substantially affects the overall elastic properties. • Th...
