Study of a new class of nonlinear inextensible elastic bodies Academic Article uri icon


  • © 2015, Springer Basel. In this paper, we study the consequences of the constraint of inextensibility with regard to a class of constitutive relations, where the strain is given as a function of the stress. Such constitutive equations belong to a wider class of implicit constitutive relations, which have been proposed recently in the literature.
