As a starter for anisotropic elastostatics we study special two-dimensional deformations of anisotropic elastic bodies, namely, antiplane deformations. Not all anisotropic elastic materials are capable of an antiplane deformation. When they are, the inplane displacement and the antiplane displacement are uncoupled. The deformations due to inplane displacement are plane strain deformations. Associated with plane strain deformations are plane stress deformations. After defining these special deformations in Sections 3.1 and 3.2 we present some basic solutions of antiplane deformations. They provide useful references for more general deformations we will study in Chapters 8, 10, and 11. The derivation and motivation in solving more general deformations in those chapters become more transparent if the reader reads this chapter first. The solutions obtained in those chapters reduce to the solutions presented here when the materials are restricted to special materials and the deformations are limited to antiplane deformations. In a fixed rectangular coordinate system xi (i=1, 2, 3), let ui, σij, and εij be the displacement, stress, and strain, respectively. The strain-displacement relations and the equations of equilibrium are . . .εij = 1/2 (ui,j + uj,i),. . . . . . (3.1 -1) . . . . . .σij,j =0,. . . . . .

The stress-strain laws for an anisotropic elastic material can be written as σij = Cijks εks or εij = Sijksσks, . . .(3.1 - 3). . . where Cijks and Sijks are, respectively, the elastic stiffnesses and compliances.
