On Edge Interactions and Surface Tension
The idea of a “line distribution of force over the edges of a body” seems to have occurred first to Toupin in 1962 (see p. 403 of [To1]). However, his treatment suffered from the same defect as most treatments of distributions of forces prior to 1960, namely these distributions were only implicit in formulas for resultant forces. The systems of forces giving rise to these resultants were not brought into the open. (See the remark by C. Truesdell in “General References” on p. 156 of [Tr].) The present paper is a first attempt to bring into the open the systems of forces that give rise to distributions of forces over edges.
