General Theory of Stress and Strain
Let us now proceed to the general theory of the behaviour of an elastic body under the action of external forces. Our discussion in this chapter is not restricted to isotropic bodies, i.e., bodies whose characteristics are the same in all directions, but is also applicable to crystals of arbitrary symmetry.
