Description of state of strain

  • A. N. Guz
Part of the Foundations of Engineering Mechanics book series (FOUNDATIONS)


In this section geometrical description of deformation of continuum, which is equally suitable for any type of solid, is considered. Basic equations concerning strain tensors and their invariants, as well as changes in geometrical objects undergoing deformation and the expressions for “tracking” loads are discussed. Simplifications which lead to the small deformations theory are also considered in this section.
