The ebook is concentrated on constitutive description of mechanical behaviour of engineering fabrics: either traditional (polycrystalline homogeneous isotropic or anisotropic steel fabrics) and non-conventional (heterogeneous multicomponent anisotropic composite materials). potent fabric houses on the macro-level rely on either the fabric microstructure (originally isotropic or anisotropic) in addition to dissipative phenomena happened on fabrication and consecutive loading section (hardening) leading to irreversible microstructure adjustments (acquired anisotropy). the fabric symmetry is a history and anisotropy is a middle round which the e-book is shaped. during this approach a revision of classical ideas of greater constitutive description of fabrics is required.
