Example text

It may or may not be isochoric, and afluidmay or may not be incompressible; the behavior of a compressible fluid in an isochoric flow is generally not at all the same as that of an incompressible fluid in the same flow. A constrained material is susceptible to a smaller class of deformations. Corresponding to this restriction, arbitrary stresses arise. Their presence makes a greater variety of response possible in those deformation that do occur. Consequently, solution of problems becomes easier.

Thus a general theory of constitutive equations is needed. The material presented here draws heavily from the work of Noll. 2 3. 2. J Principle of determinism The stress at the particle X in the body B at time t is determined by the history x r of the motion of B up to time t: T(X,0 = ^ ( x ' ; ^ 0 - (3-2-1) Here T is a functional in the most general sense of the term, namely a rule of correspondence. Equation (1) asserts that the motion of the body up to and including the present time determines a unique symmetric stress tensor T at each point of the body, and the manner in which it does so may depend upon X and t.

Under these assumptions, Euler's laws are equivalent to Cauchy's laws when X, b, p i , and T are sufficiently smooth. Cauchy's first law expresses locally the balance of linear momentum. Cauchy's second law, if thefirstis satisfied, expresses locally the balance of moment of momentum. 8 Equivalent Processes We now consider motions and forces that obey the laws of mechanics. 7-7) are satisfied. 7-5) determines a unique body force b. Here we wish to consider rather the totality of all possible problems.
