Abstract : The objectives of this study are to generate deformable flake composites in which the flakes are all parallel, to study the relation between the concentration of flakes and the properties of the composite, in particular its viscosity and anisotropy in plane strain, and to study the buckling of laminar assemblies in which flake composite's mechanical properties on the buckling geometry that results.
