Incremental Equations

  • Konstantin VolokhEmail author


The purpose of the present chapter is to formulate incremental equations of nonlinear elasticity. These equations are useful for analysis of superimposed small deformations. Such deformations can tell the story of material stability. A common approach of linear stability analysis in continuum mechanics is based on the consideration of growth or decay of superimposed deformations (perturbations).
