Materially Uniform Simple Bodies with Inhomogeneities
The basic concepts of the theory of simple materials have been introduced in reference  (see also the exposition in , Chapter C III). Here I present a detailed study of the structure of bodies that consist of a uniform simple material yet are not necessarily homogeneous.
