On anisotropic elasticity and questions concerning its Finite Element implementation
We give conditions on the strain-energy function of nonlinear anisotropic hyperelastic materials that ensure compatibility with the classical linear theories of anisotropic elasticity. We uncover the limitations associated ...
Initial stress symmetry and its applications in elasticity
(The Royal Society, 2015-10-28)
An initial stress within a solid can arise to support external loads or from processes such as thermal expansion in inert matter or growth and remodelling in living materials. For this reason, it is useful to develop a ...
