To determine the strain state at any point we need a priori to determine the displacement
field.
Calculation of the constants:
By substituting the values given for the point E (1.5; 1.0; 2.0) , we obtain:
u ( E ) = 1.503 − 1.5 = C1 (1.5)(1.0)(2.0) ⇒ C1 = 0.001
0.001

= 1.997 − 2.0 = C 3 (1.5)(1.0)(2.0) ⇒ C 3 = −0.001

v ( E ) = 1.001 − 1.0 = C 2 (1.5)(1.0)(2.0) ⇒ C 2 =

the strain tensor:

DV ≡ ε V = I ε = (33.24 − 23.01 − 4.257 ) × 10 −6 = 5.973 × 10 −6

Then, the volume variation is:

Problem 7.4
A parallelepiped of dimensions a = 3cm , b = 3cm , c = 4cm , is made up of an isotropic
homogeneous linear elastic material, which is accommodated in a cavity of the same shape
and dimensions, whose walls are made up of a very rigid material (undeformable).
Via a rigid plate (dimensions a × b ) of negligible weight and negligible friction we apply a
perpendicular compression force equal to F = 200 N which compresses the elastic block.
If ν = 0.3 is the Poisson’s ratio and E = 2 × 10 4 N / cm 2 is the Young’s modulus, calculate:
a) The lateral force exerted by the wall of the cavity on the parallelepiped;
b) The height variation experienced by it, i.e. find ∆c .

Under the action of vertical and horizontal loads the neoprene deforms as shown in Figure
7.4 (b) (A’B’C’D’) in which the displacement field ( u, v) is represented as follows:
u = a1 x + b1 y + c1
v = a2 x + b2 y + c2

where a1 , b1 , c1 , a 2 , b2 , c 2 are constants to be determined.
a) Calculate the strain tensor components and the volumetric deformation at any
point;
b) Calculate the stresses at any point;
c) The maximum normal stress;
d) Obtain the unit extension according to the direction of the diagonal AC .
Hypothesis:
1 – Isotropic linear elastic material with Young’s modulus equals to 1000 N / cm 2 and the
shear modulus equals to

1
N / cm 2 .
0.0028

2 – It is assumed a state of plane strain.
Solution:
 u = a1 x + b1 y + c1

v = a 2 x + b2 y + c 2

(7.40)

According to Figure 7.4 we obtain:
u (0;0) = 1 = c1
u (50;0) = 1.1 = 50a1 + 1 ⇒ a1 = 0.002

(7.41)

u (0;20) = 1.1 = 20b1 + 1 ⇒ b1 = 0.005

b) The length variation of the rubber block is:

The height H reached by the mercury is given by:

Then, we conclude that all the conditions are met. Then, we can apply the principle of
superposition to linear thermoelastic problem, as expected, since we are in the linear
regime.

Let us consider a length rod equal to L = 7.5m , whose diameter is equal to 0.1m , which is

1) Considering that the rod can expand freely, calculate the total elongation of the rod, ∆L ;
2) Now assume that the rod can not expand freely because concrete blocks have been

consider the normal strain component according to the x -direction, ε 11 = ε x , then:

Note that as the rod can expand freely, it is stress-free.
2) If the ends can not move, there will be a homogeneous stress field equal to:
σ x = − Eα (∆T )δ ij = − E " ε x " = −2.0 × 1011 × 7 × 10 −4 = −1.4 × 10 8 Pa

Note that in the case 2) there is no strain, since ∆L = 0 . Moreover, it is the same as when
the initial length is equal to L + ∆L in which we apply compression stress in order to
obtain a final length equal to L .

a) Obtain the principal stresses and directions of the stress tensor; Obtain the maximum

e) We can say that we are dealing with a state of plane stress?
Solution:
We obtain the eigenvalues by solving the characteristic determinant. Note that we already

the state of plane stress is considered when the stress tensor field is independent of one
