A New Model of Orthotropic Bodies

The solution of linearly elastic and orthotropic solid bodies is very complicated, thus a new element model for solving linearly elastic and orthotropic bodies is presented by using the generalized Hooke's law and the superposition principle. This new model is a simple truss consisting of some bars, and then the solution of orthotropic body becomes simple. Furthermore, this new model reveals the physical mechanism of a solid body under the action of applied forces.
