The homogenizing scheme of Ferrari and Johnson yields the effective elasticities of short-fiber composites with arbitrary orientation distributions. As a foundation for the relative numerical analysis, their homogenizing scheme is here recast in the space of invertible 6×6 matrices with an appropriate operation. Averaging procedures for isotropic-isotropic composite with nonunidirectional transversely isotropic fiber orientation distributions are presented.
