Gel Debonding from a Rigid Substrate

We consider the problem of debonding of a thin gel domain from a rigid substrate. Starting with a variational approach involving the total energy of a gel, we formulate the boundary value problem of the governing equations in two-space dimensions.

An Approach to Isotropic Tensor Functions and Their Derivatives Via Omega Matrix Calculus

In this work we show how to obtain a closed form expression of any isotropic tensor function F(A)$F\left (\boldsymbol{A}\right )$ and their associated derivatives with A$\boldsymbol{A}$ a second order tensor in a finite dimensional space. Our …


Dynamics of Two Linearly Elastic Bodies Connected by a Heavy Thin Soft Viscoelastic Layer

In this paper, we extend the asymptotic analysis in (Licht et al. in J. Math. Pures Appl. 99:685–703, 2013) performed, in the framework of small strains, on a structure consisting of two linearly elastic bodies connected by a thin soft nonlinear …

Derivation of a Homogenized Bending–Torsion Theory for Rods with Micro-Heterogeneous Prestrain

In this paper we investigate rods made of nonlinearly elastic, composite–materials that feature a micro-heterogeneous prestrain that oscillates (locally periodic) on a scale that is small compared to the length of the rod. As a main result we …


On the Determination of Plane and Axial Symmetries in Linear Elasticity and Piezo-Electricity

We formulate necessary and sufficient conditions for a unit vector $\pmb{\nu }$ to generate a plane or axial symmetry of a constitutive tensor. For the elasticity tensor, these conditions consist of two polynomial equations of degree lower than …

Über diese Zeitschrift

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.
