My
desire
in
writing
this
textbook
was
to
show
the
fascination
and
beauty
of
nonlin
ear
solid
mechanics
and
thembdynamics
from
an
engineering
computational
point
of
view.
My
primary
goal
was
not
only
to
offer
a
modem
introductory
textbook
using
the
continuum
approach
to
be
read
with
mterest,
enjoyment
and
curiosity,
but
also
to
offer
a
reference
book
that
incorporates
some
of
the
recent
developments
in
the
field.
I
wanted
to
stimulate
and
invite
the
reader
to
study
this
exciting
science
and
take
him
on
a
pleasant
journey
in
the
wonderful
world
of
nonlinear
mechanics,
which
serves
as
a
solid
basis
for
a
surprisingly
large
variety
of
problems
arising
in
practical
engineering.
Linear
theories
of
solid
mechanics
are
highly
developed
and
are
in
a
satisfactory
state
of
complehon.
Most
processes
in nature,
however,
are
hlghly
nonlinear.
The
ap
proach
taken
has
the
aim
of
providing
insight
in
the
basic
concepts
of
solid
mechanics
wlth
particular
reference
to
the
nonlinear
regime.
Once
familiar
with
the
main
ideas
the
reader
will
be
able
to
specialize
in
different
aspects
of
the
subject
matter.
I
felt
the
need
for
a
selfcontained
textbook
intended
primarily
for
beginners
who
want
to
un
derstand
the
correspondence
between
nonlinear
continuum
mechanics,
nonlinear
con
stitutive
models
and
variational
principles
as
essential
prerequisites
for
finite
element
formulations.
Of
course,
no
single
book
can
cover
all
aspects
of
the
broad
field
of
solidmechanics,
so
that
many
topics
are
not
discussed
here
at
all.
The
selection
of
the
material
for
inclusion
is
influenced
strongly
by
current
curricula,
trends
in
the
literature
and
the
author's
particular
interests
in
engineering
and
science.
Here,
a
particular
selection
and
style
was
chosen
in
order
to
highlight
some
of
the
more
inspiring
topics
in
solid
mechanics.
I
hope
that
my
choice,
which
is
of
course
subjective,
will
be
found
to
be
acceptable.
My
ultimate
intention
was
to
present
an
introduction
to
the
subject
matter
in
a
di
dactically
sound
manner
and
as
clearly
as
possible.
I
hope
that
the
text
provides
enough
insights
for
understanding
of
the
terminology
used
in
scientific
stateofthe
art
papers
and
to
find
the
'right
and
straightforward
path'
in
the
scientific
world
through
the
effec
tive
use
of
figures,
which
are
very
important
learning
tools.
They
are

most
of

text
I
have
used

However,
for

For
those
who
have
not
been
exposed
to
the
necessary
mathematics
I
have
included
a
chapter
on
tensor
algebra
and
tensor

It
includes
the
essential
ideas
of

in
the
form
of
the

of

in

prime
consideration
of
Chapter

to
use
tensor

for
the
descrip
tion
of
the

and

of

The
continuum
approach
is
introduced
along
with
the
notion
'Lagrangian'
(material)
and
'Eulerian'
(spatial)
de
scriptions.
In
a
systematic
way
the
most
important
kinematic
tensors
are
provided
and
their
physical
significance
explained.
The
pushforward
and
pullback
operations
for
material
and
spatial
quantities
and
the
concept
of

are
intro

The
concept
of

is
the
main
topic
of
Chapter

Cauchy's
stress
theorem
is
introduced,
along
with
the
Cauchy

and
the
essential

is
focused
on
the
discussion
of
the
balance
principles.
Both
statics
and
dynamics
are
treated.
Based
upon
continuum
thermodynamics
the
entropy

principle
is
provided
and
the
general
structure
of

is
summarized
as

principle.
Chapter

deals
with
important
aspects
of

which
plays
a
crucial
part
in
nonlinear
continuum
mechanics.
A
discussion
of

of

is
followed
by
a
development
of
objective

and
invariance
of
elastic

response.
Chapters
6
and
7
form
the
central
part
of
the
book
and
provide
insight
in
the
con
sbruction
of
nonlinear
constitutive
equations
for
the
description
of
the
mechanical
and
thermomechanical
behavior
of
solids.
These
two
chapters
show
the
essential
richness
of
the
field.
They
are
written
for
those
who
want
to
gain
experience
in
handling
ma
terial
models
and
deriving
stress
relations
and
the
associated
elasticity
tensors
that
are
fundamental
for
finite
element
methods.
Several
examples
and
exercises
are
aimed
at
enabling
the
reader
to
thinkin
terms
of
constitutive
models
and
to
formulate
more
com
Preface
xi
plex
material
models.
All
of
the
types
of
constitutive
equations
presented
are
accessible
for
use
within
finite
element
procedures.
The
bulk
of
Chapter
6
is
concerned
with
finite
elasticity
and
finite
viscoelasticity.
It
includes
a
discussion
of
isotropic,
incompressible
and
compressible
hyperelastic
ma
terials
and
provides
constitutive
models
for
transversely
isotropic
and
composite
ma
terials
which
are
suitable
for
a
large
number
of
applications
in
practical
engineering.
An
approach
to
inelastic
materials
with internal
variables
is
given
along
with
instruc
tive
examples
of
hyperelastic
materials
that
involve
relaxation
andlor
creep
effects
and
isotropic
damage
mechanisms
at
finite
strains.
The
main
purpose
of
Chapter
7
is
to
pro
vide
an
introduction
to
the
thermodynamics
of
materials.
This
chapter
is
devoted
not
only
to
the
foundation
of
continuum
thermodynamics
but
also
to
selected
topics
of
sta
tistical
thermodynamics.
It
starts
with
a
statistical
approach
by
summarizing
important
physical
aspects
of
the
thermoelastic
behavior
of
molecular
networks
(for
example:
amorphous
solid
polymers),
based
almost
entirely
on
an
entropy
concept,
and
con
tinues
with
a
systematic
phenomenological
approach
including
finite
thermoelasticity
and
finite
thermoviscoelasticity.
The
stressstraintemperature
response
of
socalled
entropic
elastic
materials
is
discussed
in
more
detail
and
based
on
a
representative
example
which
is
concerned
with
the
adiabatic
stretching
of
a
rubber
band.
Typical
thermomechanical
coupling
effects
are
studied.
Chapter
8
is
designed
to
cover
the
essential
features
of
the
most
important
varia
tional
principles
that
are
very
useful
in formulating
approximation
techniques
such
as
the
finite
element
method.
Although
finite
elements
are
not
treated
in
this
text,
it
is
hoped
that
this
.chapter
will
be
attractive
to
those
who
approach
the
subject
from
the
computational
side.
It
shows
the
relationship
between
the
strong
and
weak
forms
of
initial
boundaryvalue
problems,
presents
the
classical
principle
of
virtual
work
in
both
spatial
and
material
descriptions
and
its
linearized
form.
Two
and
threefield
varia
tional
principles
are
also
discussed.
The
present
text
ends
where
conventionally
a
book
on
the
finite
element
method
would
begin.
There
are
numerous
worked
examples
adjacent
to
the
relevant
text.
These
have
the
goal
of
clarifying
and
supplementing the
subject
matter.
In
many
cases
they
are
straightforward,
but
provide
an
essential
part
of
the
text.
The
symbol
W
is
used
to
de
note
the
end
of
an
exercise
or
a
proof.
The
endof
chapter
exercises
are
for
homework.
The
(almost)
200
exercises
provided
are
designed
to
supplement
the
text
and
to
con
solidate
concepts
discussed in the
text.
Most
of
them
serve
the
purpose
of
stimulating
the
reader
to
further
study
and
to
reinforce
and
develop
practical
skills
in
nonlinear
continuum
and
solid
mechanics,
towards
the
direction
of
coinputational
mechanics.
In
many
cases
the
solutions
of
selected
exercises
are
given
and
frequently
used
later
in
further
developments.
Therefore,
it
should
be
instructive
for
the
reader
to
work
through
a
reasonable
number
of
exercises.
Numerous
references
to
supplementary
material
are
suggested
and
discussed
briefly
xii
Preface
throughout
the
book.
However,
for
a
book
of
this
kind
it
is
not
possible
to
give
a
com
prehensive
bibliography
of
the
field.
Some
of
the
references
listed
serve
as
a
starting
point
for
more
advanced
studies.
The
material
in
this
book
is
based
on
a
sequence
of
courses
that
I
have
taught
at
the
University
of
Technology
in
Graz
and
Vienna.
The
mechanics
and
thermodynamics
of
solids
are
relevant
to
all
branches
of
engineering,
to
applied
mechanics,
mathemat
ics,
physics
and
material
science,
and
it
is
a
central
field
in
biomechanics.
This
book
is
primarily
addressed
to
graduate
students,
researchers
and
practitioners,
although
it
has
also
proven
to
be
of
interest
to
advanced
undergraduates.
Although
I
have
tried
to
provide
a
textbook
that
is
selfcontained
and
appropriate
for
selfinstruction,
it
is
desirable
that
the
reader
has
a
reasonable
background
in
elementary
mechanics
and
thermodynamics.
I
feel
that
Chapters
25
and
parts
of
the
remaining
chapters
are
well
suited
for
a
complete
course
on
nonlinear
continuum
mechanics
lasting
two
semesters
or
three
quarters.
A
one
semester
or
one
quarter
course
in
the
nonlinear
mechanics
of
solids
would
focus
on
Chapter
6,
while
a
one
quarter
course
in the
thermodynamics
of
solids
could
be
based
on
Chapter
7.
Chapter
1
is
the
core
for
a
course
that
provides
the
student
with
the
necessary
background
in
vector
and
tensor
analysis.
Chapter
8
is
certainly
not
designed
to
train
specialists
in
variational
principles,
but
to
form
a
basic
one
quarter
course
at
the
graduate
level.
I
believe
that
the
present
textbook,
in
providing
many
applications
to
engineer
ing
science,
is
not
too
advanced
mathematically.
Of
course,
some
of
the
results
pre
sented
may
be
derived
with
the
help
of
more
advanced
mathematics
using
theorems
and
proofs.
I
hope
that
this
book
will
help
pure
engineers
to
teach
nonlinear
continuum
mechanics
and
solid
mechanics.
Naturally,
as
the
author,
I
take
full
responsibility
for
not
doing
it
better.
Comments
and
criticisms
will

I

the

The
focus
of
the
revision
for
this
second
printing
is
the
Insertion
of
additional
equations
on
pages
50,51,74,
and
an
additional
exercise
on
page
76.
This
has
caused
changes
in
the
numbers
of
some
equations in
parts
of
the
book
as
compared
with
the
first
printing.
I
have
also
done
some
minor
rewording
and
have
added
a
few
more

to
present
the
fundamental
rules
and
standard
results
of
ten
sor
algebra
and

permanently
used
in

Some

the

of
the
statements
are
given
without

is
a

line
element
in

It
is
a
model
for
physical
quantities
having
both
di
rection
and
length,
for
example,
force,
velocity
or
acceleration.
Two
vectors
that
have
the
same
direction
and
length
are
said
to
be
equal.
The
sum
of
vectors
yields
a
new
vector,
based
on
the
parallelogram
law
of
addi
tion.
The
following
properties
u+v=v+u
;
(u+v)+w=u+(v+w)
;
u+o=u
;
ut
(u)
=
0
hold,
where
o
denotes
the
unique
zero
vector
with
unspecified
direction
and
zero
length.
Let
u
be
a
vector
and
(Y
be
a
real
number
(a scalar).
Then
the
scalar
multiplication
cru
produces
a
new
vector
with
the
same
direction
as
u
if
0
>
0
or
with
the
opposite
direction
to
u
if
a:
<

Further
properties
are:
Dot

The
dot
(or
scalar
or
inner)
product
of
u
and
v,
denoted
by
u

v
(or

v)),
is
where
B(u,
v)
is
the
angle
between
two
nonzero
vectors
u
and
v
when
their
origins
coincide.
This product
gives
a
scalar
quantity
with the
properties

The

(or

is
called
the
length
(or
norm
or

of
a
vector
u,
which
is
a
nonnegative
real
number.
It
is
defined
by
the

of

any

out
the

simply
as

:
(1.20)
where
we
have
adopt
the
summation
convention,
invented
by
Einstein.
The
summa
tion
convention
says
that
whenever
an
index
is
repeated
(only
once)
in
the
same
term,
then,
a
summation
over
the
range
of
this
index
is
implied
unless
otherwise
indicated.
We
consider
only
the
threedimensional
Euclidean
space,
which
we
characterize
by
means
of
Latin
indices

running

We
denote
the
basis
vectors
by
{e,),E(i,2,3)
collectively.
Subsequently,
in
this
text,
the
braces
{a)
will
stand
for
a
fixed
set
of
basis
vectors
and
the
symbol
a
for
any
tensor
element.
The
index
i
that
is
summed
over
is
said
to
be
a
dummy
(or
summation)
index,
since
a
replacement
by
any
other
symbol
does
not
affect
the
value
of
the
sum.
An
index
that
is
not
summed
over
in
a
given
term
is
called
a
free
(or
live)
index.
Note
that
in
the
same
equation
an
index
is
either
dummy
or
free.

Introduction
to
Vectors
and
Tensors
If
A
and
B
are
two
(secondorder)
tensors,
we
can
define
the
sum
A
+
B,
the
difference
A

B
and
the
scalar
multiplication
aA
by
the
rules
where
u
denotes
an
arbitrary
vector.
The
important
secondorder
unit
(or
identity)
tensor
I
and
the
secondorder
zero
tensor
0
are
defined,
respectively,
by
the
relations
Iu
=
uI
=
u
and
Ou
=
uO
=
o
for
all
vectors
u.
Note
that
tensor
0
maps
every
u
to
the
zero
vector
o.
Tensor
product.
The
tensor
(or
direct
or
matrix)
product
or
the
dyad
of
the
vectors
u
and
v
is
denoted
by
u
@
v
(some
authors
use
the
notation
uv).
It
is
a
second
order
tensor
which
linearly
transforms
a
vector
w
into
a
vector
with the
direction
of
u
following
the
rule
(u@v)w=u(v.w)=
(v.w)u
.
(1.53)
The
dyad,
not
to
be
confused
with the
dot
or
cross
product,
has
the
linearity
property
In
adhtion,
note
the
relations
(au+8v)~w=cr(u@w)+B(v@w)
:
(1.55)
U(V@W)
=
(u.
v)w=
w(u.v)
.
(1.56)
(u@v)(w@x)
=
(v~w)u@x=u@x(v~w)
.
(1.57)
A(u@v)
=
(Au)@v
.
(1.58)
\
Generally,
the
dyad
is
not
commutative,
i.e.
u
@
v
#
v
@
u
and
(u
@
v)
(w
@
x)
#
(w
@
X)(U
@
v).
A
dyadic
is
a
linear
combination
of
dyads
with
scalar
coefficients,
for
example,
a(u
3
v)
+
p(w
El
x).
Note
further
that
no
tensor
may
be
expressed
as
a
single
tensor
product,
in
general,
A
=
u
@
v
+
w
@
x
#
y
@
z.
Any
secondorder
tensor
may
be
expressed
as
a
dyadic.
As
an
example,
the
second
order
tensor
A
may
be
represented
by
a
linear
combination
of
dyads
formed
by
the
(carte&)
basis
{e,),
i.e.
We
call
A,
which
is
resolved
along
basis
vectors
that
are
orthonormal,
a
Cartesian
tensor
of
order
two
(more
general
tensors will
be
considered
in
Section
1.6).
The

Using

for

then

The

of

a

It

The
summation,
multiplication
by
scalars
and
dot
products
of
tensors
are
governed
mainly
by
properties
known
from
ordinary
arithmetic,
for
example,
(aA)

aA
;
(1.75)
(AB)C

ABC
:
(1.76)
A2

:
(1.77)
(A+B)C
=
AC+BC
.
(1.78)
Note
that,
in
general,
the
dot
product
of
secondorder
tensors
is
not
commutative,
i.e.
AB
#
BA
and
also
Au

Moreover,

A3

and
Au

not,
in

imply
that
A,

are

The

For
convenience,
we
adopt
the
convention
that
a

a

Trace

The

a
scalar
denoted

Taking,

the

Orthogonal

An
orthogonal
tensor
Q
is
a
linear
transformation
satisfying
the
condition
for
all
vectors
u
and
v
(see
Figure

As
can
be
seen,
the
dot
product
u

is
invariant
during
that
transformation,
which
means
that
both
the
angle

between
u
and
v
and
the
lengths
of
the
vectors,
lul,
vI,
are
preserved.

Orthogonal

Hence,
an
orthogonal
tensor
has
the
property
Q~Q

QQ~
=

which
means
that
Q'
=
QT.
Another
important
property
is
that
det(QTQ)
=
(detQ)2
with
detQ
=
f

If

Q

Symmetric
and
skew
tensors.
Any
tensor
A
can
always
be
uniquely
decomposed
into
a
symmetric
tensor,
here
denoted
by
S,
and
a
skew
(or
antisymmetric)
tensor,
here
denoted
by
W.
Hence,
A
=
S
+
W,
while
In
this
text,
we
also
use
the
notation
symA
for
S
and
skewA
for
W.
Tensors
S
and
W
are
governed
by
properties
such
as
which
in
matrix
notation
reads
I
In
accord
with
the
notation
introduced,
the
useful
properties
hold,
where
B
denotes
any
secondorder
tensor.
A
skew
tensor
with
property
W
=
WT
has
zero
diagonal
elements
and
only
three
independent scalar
quantities
as
seen
from
eq.
(1.1
14)2.
Hence,
every
skew
tensor
W
behaves
like
a
vector
with
three
components.
Indeed,
the
relation
holds:
where
u
is
any
vector
and
w
characterizes
the
axial
(or
dual)
vector
of
skew
tensor
W,
with
property
I
w
=

IW~
(the
proof
is

The

of
W
follow
from

with the
help
of

Algebra
of
Tensors
19
Every
tensor
A
can
be
decomposed
into
its
socalled
spherical
part
and
its
devia
toricpart,
i.e.
A
=
a1
+
devA
or
Aij
=
ab,.
+
devAij
(1.131)
Any
tensor
of
the
form
aI,
with
a
denoting
a
scalar,
is
known
as
a
spherical
tensor,
while
devA
is
known
as
a
deviator
of
A,
or
a
deviatoric
tensor.
The
deviatoric
op
erator
dev(a)
is
denoted
by
the
shorthand
notation,
i.e.
dev(0)
=
(8)

(1/3)tr(a)I,
or
dev(a)u
=
(*)i,

(1/3)(*)kkbij.
Computing
the
trace
of
(1.131)
we
deduce
with
(1.92),
(1.87)5,
(1.22)1
and
(1.
132)3
that
Aii
=
3(Aii/3)
+
devAii.
This
relation
yields
the
important
property
which
means
that
the
trace
of
the
deviator
of
A
is
always
zero.

Higherorder
Tensors
In
the
following
we
discuss
higherorder
tensors.
Any
tensor
of
order
(or
rank)
n
may
be
expressed
in
the
form
As
(1.135)
shows,
a
tensor
of
order
n
has
3n
components
Ai,i2...i,,
provided
with
n
inhces
il,
i2,.
.
.
,
2,.
In
particular,
a
tensor
of
order
zero
has
3'
=
1
component
with
0
(no)
index,
which
simply
is
a
scalar
a
(i.e.
a
single
real
number).
A
tensor
of
order
one
has
3l
=
3
components
characterizing
any
vector
v,
i.e.
vi
as
indicated
in
(1.23).
A
tensor
of
order
two,
for
example,
A,
has
32
=
9
components,
i.e.
Aij
as
indicated
in
(1.60).
Tensor
of
order
three.
A
tensor
of
order
three
we
distinguish
by
the
notation
A,
B,
C,
.
.
.
According
to
(1.135),
d
may
be
expressed
as
where
Auk
characterizes
the
33
=
27
components
of
d.
1.3
Higherorder
Tensors
21
A
particular
example
for
a
thirdorder
tensor
is
the
socalled
triadic
product
of
three
vectors
U:
v;
w,
denoted
by
u
@
v
8
w,
with
the
properties
(u@v)@w=u@v@w
:
(1.137)
(u@v@w)x
=
(w.x)u@v
:
(1.138)
(u@v@w):
(x@y)
=
(v.x)(w.y)u
:
(1.139)
(u@v@w):I=
(v.w)u
.
(1.140)
Hence,
by
analogy
with
the
procedure
which
led
to
eq.
(1.62)
we
may
determine
the
components
of
$I
i.e.
Aijk
=
(ei
@
e,)
:
.4ek
.
(1.141)
The
double
contraction
of
a
thirdorder
tensor
A
with
a
secondorder
tensor
B
produces
a
vector.
It
is
denoted
by
d
:
B
and
may
be
found
with
representations
(1.136):
(1.59)
and
properties
(l.l39),
(1.21)
and
(1.61)
as

B
=
AjkBi,(ei

EXAMPLE

Let
E
denote
the
thirdorder
permutation
tensor,
which
may
be
expressed
as
E
=
sijkei
3
ej
@
eh
.
(1.143)
Here,
~ijk
=
(ei
x
ej)
.
ek
are
the
33
components
of
E
whlch
we
have
introduced
as
the
permutation
symbol
(recall
eqs.
(1.33)
and
(1.35)).
Show
that
the
double
contraction
of
E
with
the
dyad
of
any
vectors
u
and
v,
i.e.
u
@
v,
gives
the
cross
product
of
v
and
u.
Solution.
With
expressions
(E)Uk
=
&i3k
and
(u
@
v)~,
=

we
may
write
E
:
(u
8
v)
=
&ijkulv,(ei
@
ej
@
ek)
:
(ei
@
em)
.
(1.144)
Using
properties
(1.139),
(1.21)
and
(1.22)2,
we
find
that
&

(U

=
