Finite circumferential shearing of nonlinear solids in the context of thennoelasticity Academic Article uri icon


  • The authors investigate the presence of 'boundary layer' like structures wherein strains are confined adjacent to boundaries due to the circumferential shearing of nonlinear elastic materials, in the context of finite thennoelasticity. It is found that even in the case of the classical neo-Hookean model pronounced boundary layer structures are possible. For materials whose shear modulus depends on both the temperature and the stretch, it is shown that the effects can either reinforce or mitigate each other. The problem considered here reduces to that studied by Tao and co-workers (1992) for the isothermal case. © 1994 Oxford University Press.
