13) Γu γ · n · u d A. 14) which is the Principle of Minimum Complementary Potential Energy (PMCPE). By directly adding together the potential energy and the complementary energy we obtain an equation of energy balance: J (u) + K (σ ) = 1 2 + Ω 1 2 ∇u : IE : ∇u dΩ − Ω Ω σ : IE−1 : σ dΩ − = 0. These relations will be important later. 15) Chapter 4 Fundamental Micro–Macro Concepts As stated in the introduction, it is clear that for the relation between averages to be useful it must be computed over a sample containing a statistically representative amount of material.

Square integrable, in other words u ∈ H 1 (Ω ) if ||u||2H 1 (Ω ) = ∂u ∂u Ω ∂xj ∂xj dΩ + def uu dΩ < ∞. e. 3) def and we denote L2 (Ω ) =[L2 (Ω )]3 . Using these definitions, a complete weak boundary value problemcan be written as follows. The data (loads) are assumed to be such that f ∈ L2 (Ω ) and t ∈ L2 (Γt ), but less smooth data can be considered without complications. Implicitly we require that u ∈ H1 (Ω ) and σ ∈ L2 (Ω ) without continually making such references. Therefore in summary we assume that our solutions obey these restrictions, leading to the following infinitesimal strainlinear elasticity weak statement: Find u ∈ H1 (Ω ), u|Γu = d, such that ∀v ∈ H1 (Ω ), v|Γu = 0 Ω ∇v : IE : ∇u dΩ = Ω f · v dΩ + Γt t · v d A.

Therefore, E, the so-called “Young’s” modulus, is the ratio of the uniaxial stress to the corresponding strain component. The Poisson ratio, ν , is the ratio of the transverse strains to the uniaxial strain. Another commonly used set of stress-strain forms are the Lam´e relations, σ = λ trε 1 + 2με or ε = − λ σ trσ 1 + . 65) To interpret the constants, consider a pressure test where σ12 = σ13 = σ23 = 0, and E where σ11 = σ22 = σ33 . Under these conditions we have κ = λ + 23 μ = 3(1−2 ν) , 2(1+ν ) E κ κ 1 κ μ = 2(1+ ν ) and μ = 3(1−2ν ) .
