Linear isotropic elasticity with body forces

  • D. Danson


Probably the commonest type of analysis undertaken by engineers in practice is linear isotropic stress analysis. Even when geometrical or material nonlinearities exist, or when the problem is anisotropic, the linear isotropic stress analysis is undertaken as a first approximation in order to save the time and effort which is required when these non-linear properties are taken into account.
