stationary heat conduction problem; $Y$-periodicity; homogenized coefficients; bounds; laminate structures.
In this paper we study bounds for the off-diagonal elements of the homogenized tensor for the stationary heat conduction problem. We also state that these bounds are sharp by proving a formula for the homogenized tensor in the case of laminate structures.
