Constitutive Theory

  • Cemal Eringen
Part of the International Centre for Mechanical Sciences book series (CISM, volume 23)


The fundamental axioms of the general theory of constitutive equations for nonlocal micropolar continuum theories are presented in Art. 3.2. The nonlinear constitutive equations are then obtained for anisotropic thermoelastic solids in Art. 3.3 and their special forms for isotropic materials are presented in Art. 3.4. The linear theories of anisotropic and isotropic micropolar thermoelasticity are discussed and the restrictions arising from the nonnegative character of the strain energy are obtained in Arts. 3.5 and 3.6.
