 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 stressstrain
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.
