General Theory of Mechanical Material Behaviour
The theory of material behaviour (material theory) is a division of continuum mechanics. The aim of the material theory is to provide general principles and systematic methods for constructing mathematical models suitably representing the individual properties of material bodies. The modelling of material behaviour can be realised on three levels: constitutive equations, material symmetry properties and conditions of kinematic constraint.
