Method of the anisotropy potential in the linear mechanics of polymers

  • 16 Accesses


The potential of the displacements due to the anisotropy of the physical properties of a material (the anisotropy potential) is used in order to reduce the solution of the linear statistical boundary problem of elasticity theory and that of the linear creep of homogeneous anisotropic bodies to two simpler problems: one involving an anisotropic medium, and the other involving an equation analogous to the Poisson equation.
