Calculate the effective homogeneous orthotropic elastic lamina properties from orthotropic fiber and isotropic matrix elastic properties and fiber volume fraction. The Voigt and Reuss models provide upper and lower property predictions. The Halpin-Tsai semi-empirical model is also provided with suggestions for the dimensionless property, xi.
