Title:Consistent theory for elastic deformations with small strains
Author(s):Shield, Richard T.
Subject(s):Elastic Deformations
Linear Elastic Behavior
Abstract:A consistent theory is developed for linear elastic behavior in which the strains are small but in which no restriction is placed on the magnitudes of the displacements or the rotations of elements of the body. The theory reduces to the classical theory for infinitesimal deformations when the rotations are small. Pure torsion of a long cylinder and the bending of a beam by a terminal load are treated in order to illustrate the application of the theory. The bending solution agrees with the St. Venant flexure solution when the deflections are small and with the theory of the elastica when the deflections are large.
