I are looking to thank R. L. Fosdick, M. E. Gurtin and W. O. Williams for his or her specified feedback of the manuscript. I additionally thank F. Davi, M. Lembo, P. Nardinocchi and M. Vianello for worthwhile comments brought on by way of their interpreting of 1 or one other of the numerous past drafts, from 1988 thus far. because it has taken me see you later to carry this writing to its current shape, many different colleagues and scholars have episodically provided worthy reviews and stuck blunders: a listing may threat to be incomplete, yet i'm heartily thankful to all of them. eventually, I thank V. Nicotra for skillfully remodeling my hand sketches into book-quality figures. P. PODIO-GUIDUGLI Roma, April 2000 magazine of Elasticity fifty eight: 1-104,2000. 1 P.

Displacement permit eight be a three-dimensional Euclidean area, and permit V be the vector house linked to eight. We distinguish some degree p E eight either from its place vector p(p):= (p-o) E V with appreciate to a selected starting place zero E eight and from any triplet (~1, ~2, ~3) E R3 of coordinates that we may well use to label p. additionally, we endow V with the standard internal product constitution, and orient it in a single of the 2 attainable manners. It then is sensible to contemplate the internal product a .

REMARKS. 1. Our present description of the linearly elastic response originated in two papers by G. Green dated 1839 and 1841 (cf. ], Cauchy held different views, based on his construction of a molecular model for linear elasticity. 15); hence, there are at most 15 independent moduli. Cauchy's elasticity has been called by Pearson the rari-constant theory, to distinguish it from the standard multi-constant theory of Green (cf. [32]). 2. We have left tacit a possible dependence of the mechanical response on the material point.

Recall from Section 13 that the fourth-order tensors are the linear transformations on Lin, and that we write lLin for their collection. ** For a given Q E Rot, we have also had occasion to consider the linear transformation A ~ QAQT delivering the orthogonal conjugate of A with respect to Q. We now wish to show that this mapping is a special case of one of two product rules that generate elements of lLin starting from two arbitrary elements of Lin. Given A, BELin, the conjugation product of the ordered pair (A, B) is the fourth-order tensor A ~ B[C] := ACBT, C E Lin; * We shall prove that fj,c is a group in Section 16.

Let T = Tlt@ t + T2(I - t@t), t E 'U, and let u E [TJ, T2] be given. Show that, for all unit vectors n such that n . 15) has constant value T = (u - TI)I/2(T2 _ U)J/2. 10. Alternative Forms of the Basic Balance Laws We have already given, following Cauchy, pointwise equivalents of the basic balance laws. 3) 36 P. PODIO-GUIDUGU (Exercise 1).
