A contribution to modelling of composite solids

Wiesław Nagórko, Monika Wągrowska
The aim of this paper is to prove that micro-periodic composites made of linear-elastic isotropic components and having a hexagonal representative cell with the triple axis of material symmetry are also isotropic in the macro-scale. The prove of this statement will be given on the basis of the tolerance averaging method of modelling, Woźniak and Wierzbicki (2000).
