Anisotropic laminates with bending-stretching coupling possess eigensolutions that are analytic functions of the complex variables where the eigenvalues and the corresponding eigenvectors are determined in the present analysis, along with the higher-order eigenvectors associated with repeated eigenvalues of degenerate laminates. The analysis and the resulting expressions are greatly simplified by using a mixed formulation involving a new set of elasticity matrices A*, B*, and D*. There are 11 distinct types of laminates, each with a different expression of the general solution. For an infinite plate with an elliptical hole subjected to uniform in-plane forces and moments at infinity, closed-form solutions are obtained for all types of anisotropic laminates in terms of the eigenvalues and eigenvectors.
