Transverse-Isotropic Elastic and Viscoelastic Solids Academic Article uri icon


  • A set of invariants are presented for transverse-isotropic materials whose gradients produce strain fields, instead of deformation fields as is typically the case. Finite-strain theories for elastic and K-BKZ-type viscoelastic solids are derived. Shear-free and simple shearing deformations are employed to illustrate the constitutive theory.
