We investigate the effect of constitutive coupling of stretching, bending, and transverse shearing deformation on the deflection of an anisotropic cantilever beam with narrow rectangular cross-section. To this end, we have developed a hierarchy of beam models by applying a variational principle for displacements and transverse stresses to the associated plane stress problem.
