An analytic solution for the elastic response of anisotropic composite beams of rectangular cross section is presented. The formulation is based on the expression of the stress tensor components as trigonometric series and exponential functions. The ability to predict the elastic response and the corresponding elastic coupling mechanisms is well demonstrated and discussed.
