Rods or Bars

  • Andreas ÖchsnerEmail author
Part of the SpringerBriefs in Applied Sciences and Technology book series (BRIEFSAPPLSCIENCES)


This chapter covers the continuum mechanical description of rod/bar members. Based on the three basic equations of continuum mechanics, i.e., the kinematics relationship, the constitutive law and the equilibrium equation, the partial differential equation, which describes the physical problem, is derived.
