Advanced Structural Analysis/Part I - Theory/Materials/Properties/Elasticity/Additional Aspects
The simplistic view on elasticity presented in this section is useful in many ways. It should be noted however, that it is incomplete. The chapter Continuum Mechanics presents a theory of how 2D and 3D stress and strain fields interact. Moreover, the material property , may be influenced by several factors, including: temperature, aging and rate of deformation. Therefore, keep in mind that there is more to come on this subject later on in the book.
