Nonlinear Elasticity

Part of the Interdisciplinary Applied Mathematics book series (IAM, volume 45)


Before introducing the effect of growth into a general mechanical theory, it is important to review the elements of continuum mechanics that describe the response of a material under loads, and in particular, the theory of elasticity.
