Study of Some New Constitutive Laws for Elastic Bodies

Principal Investigator: Roger Bustamante. Co-Investigator: Alejandro Ortiz-Bernardin. In the classical theory of continuum mechanics there are two concepts which are considered particularly important, namely stresses and strains. Even though, from an intuitive point of view, we would say that strains are ‘caused’ due to the presence of stresses in a body, when proposing constitutive laws…
