Questions

9.1
Which conservation laws are especially useful for describing stresses and strains? How are stress and strain related?
9.2
Write the equations that result from an inversion of the stress-strain relationship.
9.3
Describe in your own words the meanings of the state of plane stress and the state of plane strain?
9.4
Describe the two types of problems which when solved using the theory of plane elasticity provide exact solutions.
9.5
Consider small shear strain for a moment. It is often given in terms of an angle. Explain why this is done.
9.6
What is a constitutive relation? Write down the general constitutive relation in terms of Cauchy stress and strain.
9.7
For an elastic, isotropic solid material, how many constants are required to define the constitutive relations? Name these and define their meaning.
