The problem of displacements and stresses in a matrix caused by relative displacements within a system of parallel rigid microfibers is solved by complex variable methods of elasticity theory. An application to a system of two microfibers is worked out. For elastic microfibers, the force transfer from fiber to fiber is shown to be an end effect. The length of the end segment actively engaged in force transfer has been estimated. Author
