Homogenization - Elasticity

Homogenization - If materials in the model are isotropic, is it possible to get truly anisotropic resulting material?


I read that "In general, even if the materials on the micro-level are isotropic, the effective 

material can show anisotropic behavior. A general anisotropic linear elastic material 

may have twenty one independent material parameters.''


If I understand my results correctly then simple structures like ''ball in the unit cell'' result in orthotropic material.

I am a bit puzzled - what would be the simplest structure that would result in anisotropic material behaviour?

Three-phase Hashin-Sthrikman bounds

Hello everybody

does anyone have some bibliography to suggest in connection with Hashin-Shtrikman bounds for a random  three-phase composite.
