On the boundary value problem of elastostatics in terms of stresses

  • Huang Kefu
  • Wang Minzhong


The boundary value problem of elastostatics in terms of six components of the stress consists of nine equations and three boundary conditions. In this paper, we distinguished between the possible cases and impossible cases, i.e., the problem is or is not equivalent to a boundary value problem of six equations and six boundary conditions.
