[For the entire collection see Zbl 0559.00015.]
We discuss a number of problems concerned with stress and deformation analysis of fibre-reinforced composites and other strongly anisotropic materials. The kind of composite material in mind is one in which a matrix material is reinforced by strong stiff fibres which are systematically arranged in the matrix.
