Poisson's ratio is defined as negative ratio between transverse and axial strain. So, a material with zero poisson ratio must necessarily exhibit no transverse strain. After checking the wikipedia, ...
I've read a number of solid mechanics papers where a single material is modeled with constant elastic moduli (lame parameters $\lambda$, $\mu$). I've also seen composite materials modeled with ...
In solid mechanics, can I always assume that if an object undergoes no strain, then no stress is applied to it? I think it's true only because I can't seem to find a counter-example.
How to write classical dynamics of solids in tensor form (relation of stiffness and viscosity tensor)?
This is a question about dynamics. If I have understood correctly there should be a tensor that describes the dynamics of a (solid?) body (= viscosity ?). I mean, tensor that includes the time ...
