Material Behavior

  • Phillip L. Gould


The need to connect the equilibrium equations derived in Chapter 2 with the kinematic relations developed in Chapter 3 was pointed out earlier. This coupling is accomplished by considering the mechanical properties of the materials for which the theory of elasticity is to be applied and is expressed by constitutive or material laws.
