Engineering mechanics is related to all these technologies based on the experience of the authors. The first small step in many of these research activities and technologies involves the study of deformation and stress in materials, along with the associated stress—strain relations. In this book following the example of modern continuum mechanics and the example of A. Love Love, , we treat the theories of deformation and of stress separately, in this manner clearly noting their mathematical similarities and their physical differences. Continuum mechanics concepts such as couple stress and body couple are introduced into the theory of stress in the appendices of Chapters 3, 5, and 6. These effects are introduced into the theory in a direct way and present no particular problem. The notations of stress and of strain are based on the concept of a continuum, that is, a continuous distribution of matter in the region space of interest. In the mathematical physics sense, this means that the volume or region under examination is sufficiently filled with matter dense that concepts such as mass density, momentum, stress, energy, and so forth are defined at all points in the region by appropriate mathematical limiting processes see Chapter 3, Section In general, the relation between stress and deformation is a nonlinear one, and the corresponding theory is called the nonlinear theory of elasticity Green and Adkins, However, if the relationship of the stress and the deformation is linear, the material is said to be linearly elastic, and the corresponding theory is called the linear theory of elasticity. The major part of this book treats the linear theory of elasticity.

In such cases one must invariably resort to approximate methods, principally to numerical methods or to experimental methods. In addition, certain analogies based on a similarity between the equations of elasticity and the equations that describe readily studied physical systems are employed to obtain estimates of solutions or to gain insight into the nature of mathematical solutions see Chapter 7, Section , for the membrane analogy in torsion. In this book we do not treat experimental methods but rather refer to the extensive modern literature available.

Subject to certain restrictions on the nature of the solution and of region R and the form of the boundary conditions, the solution of boundary value problems of elasticity may be shown to exist see Chapter 4, Section Under broader conditions, existence and uniqueness of the elasticity boundary value problem are not ensured.

In general, the question of existence and uniqueness Knops and Payne, rests on the theory of systems of partial differential equations of three independent variables. In particular for the Laplace equation, three types of boundary value problems occur frequently in elasticity: the Dirichlet problem, the Neumann problem, and the mixed problem.

Let h x, y be a given function that is defined on B, the bounding surface of a simply connected region R. However, analytical determination of f x, y is very much more difficult to achieve than is the establishment of its existence. Indeed, except for special forms of boundary B such as the rectangle, the circle, or regions that can be mapped onto rectangular or circular regions , the problems of determining f x, y do not surrender to existing analytical techniques.

The Neumann boundary value problem for the Laplace equation is that of determining a function f x, y that 1. Without an additional requirement [namely, that f x, y has a prescribed value for at least one point of B], the solution of the Neumann problem is not well posed because otherwise the Neumann problem has a one-parameter infinity of solutions.

The mixed problem overcomes the difficulty of the Neumann problem. Then the mixed problem for the Laplace equation is that of determining a function f x, y such that it 1. It has been shown that certain mixed problems have unique solutions3 Greenspan, Because, in general, the solutions of the Dirichlet and mixed problems cannot be given in closed form, methods of approximate solutions of these problems are presented in another book by the authors Boresi et al.

More generally, these approximate methods may be applied to most boundary value problems of elasticity.

Frequently, we denote a vector by the set of its projections Ax , Ay , Az on rectangular Cartesian axes x, y, z. Thus, In general, the symbols i, j, k denote unit vectors. If B is a unit vector in the x direction, Eqs.

Skip to Main Content. Arthur P. The various moduli apply to different kinds of deformation. The elasticity of materials is described by a stress—strain curve , which shows the relation between stress the average restorative internal force per unit area and strain the relative deformation. If the material is isotropic , the linearized stress—strain relationship is called Hooke's law , which is often presumed to apply up to the elastic limit for most metals or crystalline materials whereas nonlinear elasticity is generally required to model large deformations of rubbery materials even in the elastic range.

For even higher stresses, materials exhibit plastic behavior , that is, they deform irreversibly and do not return to their original shape after stress is no longer applied. In response to a small, rapidly applied and removed strain, these fluids may deform and then return to their original shape.

Under larger strains, or strains applied for longer periods of time, these fluids may start to flow like a viscous liquid. Because the elasticity of a material is described in terms of a stress—strain relation, it is essential that the terms stress and strain be defined without ambiguity.
