C.2012-05-03 23:10:162022-09-29 14:21:152012-05-03 23:10:36enJournal articles1This work is concerned with a composite whose phases exhibit spherical transverse isotropy. A spherulitic polymer can be suitably modeled as such a composite. The problem of a hollow sphere consisting of a material of spherical transverse isotropy and undergoing shear strain or stress is first solved. The generalized self-consistent scheme is then applied to estimating the effective shear modulus of the composite as the positive root of a quadratic equation.
