A general algorithm for the calculation of variational bounds for any type of anisotropic linear elastic composite is presented. Analytical expressions for the bounds are derived using this general approach. Bounds for multiphase, linear, transversely isotropic, elastic composites are reported. Bounds for the two-dimensional case are calculated. Some comparisons with other models are shown.
