On the behaviour of spherical inclusions in a cylinder under tension loads

Ingenius Vol. 19, 2018, pp. 69-78 S. Montero, R. Bustamante, A. Ortiz-Bernardin Abstract In the present paper the behaviour of a hyperelastic body is studied, considering the presence of one, two and more spherical inclusions, under the effect of an external tension load. The inclusions are modelled as nonlinear elastic bodies that undergo small strains….

A finite element analysis of some boundary value problems for a new type of constitutive relation for elastic bodies

Acta Mechanica Volume 227, Issue 2, 2016, pp 601-615 S. Montero, R. Bustamante, A. Ortiz-Bernardin, Abstract Recently, there has been interest in the study of a new class of constitutive relation, wherein the linearized strain tensor is assumed to be a function of the stresses. In this communication, some boundary value problems are solved using the finite…

A numerical study of elastic bodies that are described by constitutive equations that exhibit limited strains

International Journal of Solids and Structures Volume 51, Issues 3–4, February 2014, Pages 875–885 A. Ortiz-Bernardin, R. Bustamante, K.R. Rajagopal Abstract Recently, a very general and novel class of implicit bodies has been developed to describe the elastic response of solids. It contains as a special subclass the classical Cauchy and Green elastic bodies. Within…
