Conclusion

We are interested in calculating the displacements

and stresses everywhere in a deforming elastic body

Elastic deformation is reversible = body returns to original

conguration when loads are removed

We know the forces and displacements imposed on the body

Force F applied to a bar of cross-section A, stress = F/A

For arbitrary 3-D solids, how do we compute the

displacements and stresses everywhere in the body?
