Generalized Mechanics of Continuous Media
In the last few years there has been a flurry of interest in continuum-mechanical theories in which the deformation is described not only by the usual vector displacement field, but by other vector or tensor fields as well. This interest was stimulated mainly by the papers of Ericksen [1–3], Toupin , and Mindlin and Tiersten . Although it is generally stated that these theories apply to materials with structure, it is not usually made very clear what features of the structure are incorporated into the theory and how the results of the theory are to be interpreted in terms of the structure.
