Classical Linear Elasticity

  • Zdeněk Martinec
Part of the Nečas Center Series book series (NECES)


The classical linearised theory of elasticity provides a model that is useful for studying infinitesimal deformations of an elastic material. In this chapter, we briefly remark on the relationship between this linearised theory for infinitesimal deformations and the exact theory of elastic simple materials.
