Abstract

Commonly, in the evaluation of the optical appearance of glass panes in building envelopes, anisotropies are a reason for a dispute between the architect or client and the façade manufacturer. Sometimes each party has a different perception, how strong the anisotropies are and what [...]

Abstract

We define stress and strain splittings appropriate to linearly elastic anisotropic materials with volumetric constraints. The treatment includes rigidtropic materials, which [...]

Abstract

A geometrically non‐linear formulation for composites and the resulting explicit dynamic finite element algorithm are presented. The proposed formulation assumes that small elastic and [...]

Abstract

We study three “incompressibility flavors” of linearly-elastic anisotropic solids that exhibit volumetric constraints: isochoric, hydroisochoric and rigidtropic. An isochoric material deforms without volume change under any stress system. An hydroisochoric material [...]
