A material is orthotropic if its mechanical or thermal properties are unique and independent in three mutually perpendicular directions. Examples of orthotropic materials are wood, many crystals, and rolled metals.

By definition, an orthotropic material has at least 2 orthogonal planes of symmetry, where material properties are independent of direction within each plane. Such materials require 9 independent variables (i.e. elastic constants) in their constitutive matrices.

### What is difference between anisotropic material and orthotropic material?

an orthotropic material is one that has the different materials properties or strength in different octhogonal directions, but properties of anisotropic material being directionally dependent. thus Orthotropic materials are anisotropic.

### What is the definition of orthotropic material?

Orthotropic materials have different mechanical properties along each of its axes because its axes are mutually orthogonal twofold axes. Therefore, they don't have one set of properties, because their properties change depending on the direction of the axis used.
