An Equivalent Indentation Method for the External Crack with a Dugdale Cohesive Zone

An equivalent indentation method is developed for the external crack problem with a Dugdale cohesive zone in the both axisymmetric and two-dimensional (2D) cases. This is achieved based on the principle of superposition by decomposing the original …


Indentation of a Periodically Layered, Planar, Elastic Half-Space

We investigate indentation by a smooth, rigid indenter of a two-dimensional half-space comprised of periodically arranged linear-elastic layers with different constitutive responses. Identifying the half-space’s material parameters as periodic …

Energy Minimising Configurations of Pre-strained Multilayers

We investigate energetically optimal configurations of thin structures with a pre-strain. Depending on the strength of the pre-strain we consider a whole hierarchy of effective plate theories with a spontaneous curvature term, ranging from …


Extension-Torsion-Inflation Coupling in Compressible Magnetoelastomeric Thin Tubes with Helical Magnetic Anisotropy

An axisymmetric and axially homogenous variational formulation is presented for coupled extension-torsion-inflation deformation in compressible magnetoelastomeric tubes in the presence of azimuthal and axial magnetic fields. The tube’s material is …


On the Wave Propagation in the Thermoelasticity Theory with Two Temperatures

This paper considers the thermoelastic theory with two temperatures that involves higher gradients of thermal and mechanical effects. The wave propagation question is addressed within the class of waves of assigned wavelength. Considering harmonic …

About this journal

The main purpose of the Journal of Elasticity is to report original and significant discoveries in elasticity, in the form of full research papers, research notes and well-documented historical essays. Materials which will prove effective in teaching appear as classroom notes. The journal provides a forum for original contributions in the physical and mathematical science of solids and in the broader areas of mechanics, mechanics of materials, and engineering sciences that have a bearing on developments in elasticity. The Journal of Elasticity was founded in 1971 by Marvin Stippes.
