Anisotrophy of the vigdergauz microstructure

Abstract

A recent article by Vigdergauz considered two-component, linearly elastic plates. It showed the existence of spatially periodic microstructures producing plates of extremal rigidity. For the microstructures which maximize or minimize the effective bulk modulus, Vigdergauz asserted that the effective behavior was isotropic. We show this is wrong: the effective tensor is in fact anisotropic.
