A Note on Plane Strain and Plane Stress Problems for a New Class of Elastic Bodies Academic Article uri icon


  • In this paper we explore the consequences of prescribing constitutive relations for elastic bodies wherein ĝ€deformationsĝ€ are given as functions of ĝ€stressesĝ€. For this class of constitutive relations in, the particular case of small deformations, we study boundary value problems for plane strain and plane stresses, and we develop a weak formulation that can be considered as the starting point for numerical computations. © 2010 Sage Publications.
