Introduction to the special issue on stability under finite deformation
(Oxford University Press, 2010)
In the botanical gardens of Grenoble, France, there is small bridge, just a few metres long, made of pre-stressed concrete. The bridge dates back to 1855 and is thought to be the oldest manufactured pre-stressed structure ...
Strain energy function for isotropic non-linear elastic incompressible solids with linear finite strain response in shear and torsion
We find the strain energy function for isotropic incompressible solids exhibiting a linear relationship between shear stress and amount of shear, and between torque and amount of twist, when subject to large simple shear ...
Extreme softness of brain matter in simple shear
We show that porcine brain matter can be modelled accurately as a very soft rubber-like material using the Mooney-Rivlin strain energy function, up to strains as high as 60%. This result followed from simple shear experiments ...
