Figure 3.1. Displacement of two points in a body and
appearance of deformation.

The result of action of outer
forces can be either movement of
a body in space or change of its
shape. Here, we are interested in
describing the changes occurring inside a body. The change of
a shape of a body is essentially
the change of distances between
different points on its surface.
Thus, change of shape can only
occur if there are changes of distances between different sites
inside a material, and this phenomenon is called deformation.
The change of distances between points inside a body is
transmitted to the neighborhood
of a point which can be moni-

tored by following the change of very small (infinitesimally small) distances between two points.
Let the distance between two points A and B in a material be ds (Figure 3.1). As
a result of some outer action, they both move and their new positions become A′
and B′, and the distance between them now is ds′. The absolute value of (ds’ − ds)
is not important, because the initial length ds might be quite arbitrary, only relative change of the distance between two sites, determined as

ds′ − ds


The definition 3.1 is not tied to any coordinate system, meaning that ε is a scalar. It can be expressed through components of tensor of deformation (or
strain), ε ij . The position of a site in a body is characterized by its radius-vector,
r, and, because we have two sites, it is necessary to introduce two vectors: r1 for
the point A and r2 for the point B. The quantitative determination of deformation can be accomplished by following the relative displacement of two vectors,
expressed as (dr1 - dr2)/dr1. If we assume that a body after deformation remains
intact (between sites A and B), the distance between points A’ and B’ is still infinitesimal.
The difference (dr1 - dr2) is a displacement, u. As a difference of two vectors, it is
also a vector which can be expressed by its three projections: u(u1, u2, u3). Relative displacement is characterized not only by its length but also by its orientation in space. Since two vectors, u and x(x1, x2, x3), describe relative
displacement, the latter is of tensorial nature. Indeed, deformation and relative
displacement are tensors and components of these tensors can be calculated as
derivatives du/dx. It is also pertinent that there are nine such values (three projections of vector u and three of vector x), as could be expected for a tensor. The
values of all derivatives are dimensionless and they are expressed in absolute
numbers or percents.
Accurate calculations of the components of the deformation tensor give the following expression:
ε ij =

1  ∂u i ∂u j
2  ∂x j ∂x i

 1  ∂u1 ∂u1 ∂u 2 ∂u 2 ∂u3 ∂u3 
+ 

 2  ∂x ∂x




It is only true if deformations are small. Are both displacement and deformation identical in this case? In order to answer this question. by definition. derivatives in this formula are very small (<< 1) and their pair products. let us calculate the relative displacement which is.3] where the first line represents the projections of deformation along the x1-axis. Malkin 37 The complete expression for ε ij consists of linear (first parentheses) and quadratic (second parentheses) terms. This tensor. and so on. a gradient of u: g = grad u The result can be presented in the form of a matrix: . which enter into the second right-hand member in Eq 3. Ya.A. is as follows: ∂u1 ∂x1 ∂u 1  ∂u d ij =  2 + 1 2  ∂x 1 ∂x 2 1  ∂u3 ∂u1  + 2  ∂x1 ∂x3       1  ∂u1 ∂u 2  + 2  ∂x 2 ∂x1 ∂u 2 ∂x 2  1 ∂u3 ∂u1  + 2  ∂x1 ∂x3       1  ∂u1 ∂u3  + 2  ∂x3 ∂x1 1  ∂u 2 ∂u 3  + 2  ∂x3 ∂x 2 ∂u3 ∂x3       [3. Hence they can be omitted. and thus only the two first members (first parentheses) of the equation are essential. and that is why the tensor consisting only of first derivatives is called an infinitesimal deformation (or strain) tensor. In many cases. In this Section we shall discuss only small deformations.2. are negligibly smaller than derivatives. dij. Relative displacement is definitely the cause of deformations inside a body. The large deformations (if the first derivatives in Eq 3.2 are not small) will be considered in a separate Section below.

Now. part of the tensor gij coincides with the deformation tensor dij. so-called antisymmetrical. It is evident that the summation of du2/dx1 and -du1/dx2 does not lead to deformation but to rotation of the body element.2 helps to explain the concept. having gradients du2 /dx1 and -du1 /dx2. we need to understand the physical meaning of this difference or the meaning of the second.6] . It can be written in the following form: gij = dij + θij [3. let us superimpose these two displacements. It is quite evident that the tensors dij and gij are not equivalent. as shown on the right diagram.

Two displacements. the second line is the same for the u2-component. The difference between them becomes clear if we decompose components of the tensor gij into two parts in the following manner: g ij = ∂u i 1  ∂u i ∂u j = + ∂x j 2  ∂x j ∂x i  1  ∂u i ∂u j +  −  2  ∂x ∂x i j       [3. but gij ≠ dij Then. and the third. It means that the second term in Eq 3.2. Let us follow the deformation of a body element drawn as a rectangle.but not deformation.4] where the first line includes derivatives of the u1-component of displacement along three coordinate axis. part of the displacement tensor. u2 and -u1.

which means that two neighboring sites (the distance between them being infinitesimally small) move with different velocities.2. Thus displacement at any point of a body is a sum of deformation and rotation. it means that a body moves as a whole and no deformation takes place. Malkin 39 Figure 3. at any point of a body. is the same. The deformation appears only as a consequence of velocity gradient at “a point”.A. If velocity is v (a vector value). its gradient is calculated as .

e. The velocity. Differentiation in respect to scalar . . r. at a point located at the distance.adds nothing new to the result. Thus aij is a tensor determined by two vectors (v and r). Let us analyze the rotation of a solid (non-deformable) body around some axes. It means that in rotation of a solid body the gradient of velocity does exist but there is no deformation (because the body was assumed to be non-deformable). v. Thus v = ωr. and the gradient of velocity.8] where space coordinates are described by radius-vector..10] where Dij is the rate of deformation tensor. and wij is the so-called vorticity tensor. v = du/dt. . The same is true for the deformation rate.time.9. the rate of deformation tensor characterizes local changes of shape. grad v = dv/dr. i. As in the previous case. it was established that the whole gradient of displacement is not controlling deformation. d/dt. The difference between tensors aij and Dij (similar to gij and dij) can be easily illustrated by a simple example.40 Deformation and deformation rate aij = dv/dr [3. where ωis the constant angular velocity. The relationship between gradient of velocity and gradient of displacement can be found from the equation: a ij = dv d  du  d 2 u d  du  dg ij = =  =  = dr dr  dt  drdt dt  dr  dt In the previous section. The deformation is related to the first term in Eq 3. r. is evidently equal to ω. a ij = 1  ∂v i ∂v j + 2  ∂x j ∂x i  1  ∂v i ∂v j +  −  2  ∂x   j ∂x i     [3. The velocity is the rate of displacement. while the vorticity tensor describes the rate of rotation of local elements of a body without their deformation. only its symmetric part. from the axes is equal to ωr.9] one obtains aij = Dij + wij [3. The reasoning is the same as above. By decomposing tensor aij into symmetrical and antisymmetrical components.

it is very easy to illustrate the essential difference between small and large deformations. In this sense. But this approach to the definition of deformation contains an inherent contradiction.3. and it is axial extension. In the discussion of a concept of large deformations. using the model from Figure 3. Having such an approach. for example. The simple question is: what is the deformation in this case? In the first case. and the tensor dij is used instead of ε ij. drawn in Figure 3.3 LARGE DEFORMATIONS The difference between small and large deformations depends on the value of derivatives in Eq 3.3.A. Then the deformation in the first step is ε 1 * = ∆l1 l o and ε 2 * = ∆l 2 l1 in the .e. Ya. if ∆l = 1. i. and it is expressed as ε 11 = du1 dx 1 .1. That is why only materials having memory of their initial state are important here. the increase in the length occurs in two steps: initially by ∆l1 and then ∆l2. Let us compare two situations.3: In the first case (case I). Two ways of realization large deformation of unispecimen length. the quadratic terms can be neglected. Let a bar of the length lo be stretched by ∆l. The so-called engineering measure of de fo rm a t i o n equals ε * = ∆l l = 0.1 (or 10%). products of derivatives (in parentheses). Certainly in this case we also can use an engineering measure of deformation as a characteristic of change of Figure 3. let lo = 1 and ∆l = 0. Malkin 41 3. If all derivatives are much smaller than 1. The reasoning becomes much more complicated if ∆l is comparable with l. flow of a liquid may not be considered as deformation because all states are equivalent. it is always assumed that a reference state for deformation can be established. Liquid does not have initial (or reference) state.2.. equal to 1 (or 100%).

the quadratic terms in formulas for ε I * and ε II * are negligible in comparison to the linear terms.. In fact. This appears only as a result of large deformations. it becomes apparent that there is a need to introduce such measure of deformation which does not depend on the order of operations. the sample does not “know” which way it was brought to the final state. From the above.Green tensor of deformation. One of the most widely used is the so-called Cauchy .1 ε H .11] Large deformations analyzed by this measure obey the law of additivity. any function of deformation can be treated as a measure of deformation. and in this approximation (which is quite reasonable if ∆l1 and ∆l2 << lo) both measures of deformation become identical. In rheological literature. This increase is equal to (l1 + l2) and the deformation ε II* is calculated as ε II * = ∆l1 + ∆l 2 l o ( ∆l1 + ∆l 2 ) + ∆l12 + ∆l1 ∆l 2 = l o l1 lo The ε I * ≠ ε II * contradicts the physical meaning of the experiment’s interpretation because the final result is not the same in both cases. defined by: ε H = ln( ∆l l) [3. whereas calculations show a difference. because if deformations are small. It is directly related to the concept of large deformations ex- . Then the complete deformation is the sum of both ε I *= ε1 *+ ε 2 *= ∆l1 ∆l 2 l o ( ∆l1 + ∆l 2 ) + ∆l12 = + l o l1 l1 lo In the second case (case II).e. the increase of the length is achieved in one step. because initial length of a sample in the second step is l1. as required. It is easy to note that in the example discussed above ε HI = ε HII i. Cij.42 Deformation and deformation rate second step. the result does not depend on the history of deformation. Such measure is called a Hencky measure. some other values are used as a measure of deformations.

Y. The Cauchy .A.13] The main new approach which appears in the theory of large deformations concerns the importance of knowing the rate of deformation not only in a fixed coordinate system but in moving one. The value of this question has been already demonstrated by the example of large deformations in uniaxial extensions.12] where δ ij is the unit tensor (or Kronecker delta). It means that the behavior of a material in moving sites must be described because changes occur not at a point of a space but in a traveling element of a material which deforms along its re- . According to the definition. as well. Another tensor of large deformations is frequently used. the relationship between both is C ij C-1ij = δ ij Introducing different measures of deformations does not exclude the main question regarding the initial state . as DY ∂Y = + Dt ∂t ∑ v k ∂Y ∂x k [3.

This is the tensor inverse (or reciprocal) to the Cauchy .Green tensor characterizes change of the distance between two arbitrary “particles” in a “point”: here again we speak about a point.Green tensor. which can be written for any arbitrary variable. Cij. D/Dt. the problem is solved by using a so-called material or substantial derivative. For static states this problem can be solved by introducing the Hencky measure of deformations. not as a mathematical idea. temperature effect or chemical reaction) in moving media. named the Finger tensor. but as a physical object which contains many “particles”. But the same problem appears and becomes more pertinent for a continuously moving medium where the position of deformed elements of a body is changing in time and we want to describe the process or the rate of deformation. A similar situation has importance in classical hydrodynamics where transformation is followed (for example.

but on higher derivatives of deformation. There are different mathematical ways to realize the idea of transformation of the rate of deformation tensor into a fixed coordinate system and. one needs to use measures of large deformations and calculate their time derivatives. their behavior is modeled by equations containing a sum of n-th order time derivatives of deformation (so-called rheological equations of a differential type). devoted to properties of viscoelastic materials.13. In the case of the substantial time derivative. not on the rate of deformation only. An observer who measures properties of a material is always positioned in fixed (unmovable) coordinate system. and that is why it is important to apply proper rules of transition from the reference state.Eriksen.44 Deformation and deformation rate placement. In Chapter 7. This concept is called the principle of material objectivity and it states that all physical phenomena. An(t). As a result of large deformations. as well. Moreover. in some theoretical studies. and White Metzner. it is also important here that the choice of different reference states must not lead to an ambiguous estimation of deformation.

The most popular are the Rivlin . the physical meaning of this operation requires us to calculate derivatives for a moving medium which follow time changes in a material point changing its initial position. They are used if it is assumed that rheological behavior of a material depends. If deformation is large. This problem in the theory of large deformations is solved by introducing time derivatives of a different type. Similar to our discussion of large uniaxial extension. depending on the choice.2 They are determined as . Hence the general approach consists of formulating ideas concerning possible rheological behavior of a material for a moving (and deforming) element of a medium. This is completely true for the rate of deformation.

A complete treatise on modern theories of large deformations of solids is included in book by Green and Adkins. let us represent an infinitely small volume in a body as a sphere (Figure 3. d2. the directions of the radii AB.

15 gives a particularly evident result: ε v = d1 + d2 + d3 [3. which can be written as follows: εv = V ell − Vsph Vsph [3. . If deformations are small and it is possible to neglect quadratic terms in comparison with linear terms.14] Simple calculation shows that ε v = (1 + d1)(1 + d2)(1 + d3) .1 [3. volumetric changes are equal to the first (linear) invariant of the tensor of infinitesimal deformations and that is the physical meaning of the latter. ε v .4.15] It is very easy to show that ε v is expressed through invariants of the deformation tensor because change of volume must not be associated with the choice of the coordinate system.. The deformations characterize the change of the shape of a volume element of a body — transition from a sphere to an ellipsoid.16] i.e. and the invariants do not depend on the coordinate axes.

It is interesting to use the general method of decomposing the deformation tensor. the Poisson ratio.19] It is now easy to calculate the volume change. The quantitative characteristics of this property is the ratio of relative lateral contraction to the relative longitudinal extension and this special property of a material is called the Poisson ratio. radius is decreased by ∆r.

This case. therefore. with simultaneous stretching along the direction OM. due to deformation. no element of the body undergoes rotation. called pure shear. It means that pure shear can be considered (and can be realized) through the superposition of two uniaxial extension deformations (with different signs).52 Deformation and deformation rate Shear deformation. and α is its gradient.6 can be obtained in a different way. But in real materials this difference can appear to be essential. For small displacement. Geometrical image of a pure shear is drawn in Figure 3. because an act of deformation involves certain volumes which may include a large number of molecules or their constituent parts. unlike for large deformations.

Besides. determining peculiarities of flow.2 SHEAR Shear deformations are very typical for all hydrodynamic problems. . It is necessary to use the measure of deformation which is additive to the prehistory of loading and the Hencky measure of deformations. ε H . depending on rheological properties of a medium. and many others. may have variable impact even under the same geometrical conditions and stress. cutting and threading are operations in which shear plays a dominant role. Such flow occurs in a very thin gap between two parallel surfaces. to satisfy the requirement. with one of them fixed and the other moving with constant velocity. polymer solutions and melts. ε 22 and ε 33 . depending on the Poisson ratio. the Cauchy . clay. v. such as paints.7.54 Deformation and deformation rate the main goal is to produce highly oriented fibers). ε 11 -component of the deformation tensor has the following structure: ε 11 = ε * + 1 2 1 1 ε * = (λ − 1) + (λ − 1) 2 = (λ2 − 1) 2 2 2 In applications of the theory of large deformations to rubbers and rubbery polymeric solutions.

C-1 11 = λ Other components of Cij and C-1ij -tensors are expressed through deformations. liquid-like and plastic materials. many engineering applications rely on shear: twisting of bars and tubes. including the flow of low viscosity liquids (water. gasoline). Shear rate.Green and Finger methods of large deformation calculations are widely used. Main theoretical results concerning large deformations in shear were discussed in detail in the last section of this Chapter and need not be repeated.

it is widely used for measurement of rheological properties of various liquids in so-called rotational viscometers. (the direction 1 is along the radius) can be calculated using Eq 3. stretching films. one of which is rotating with constant velocity. The surface of the cover increases as a result of deformations. The calculation of the deformation field. can be performed for homogeneous static (equilibrium) state (e. The third principal deformation. considering volumes of a material before and after deformation. ε 1 . Ya. h.A. between surfaces moving in parallel to each other is small. The initial width of a cover is δ o and δ o << Ro.3 PLANE DEFORMATION (STRAIN) STATE Plane (two-dimensional) stress and deformation (strain) state appears in thin items. as discussed in Chapter 2. γ&.21. If the width of a gap. and so on.7. up to the certain size). membranes.. and after increase of inner pressure the radius becomes R. Let the initial radius of a balloon be Ro. in a flowing liquid is calculated as γ& = v/h This formula also applies when both surfaces are curved but the size of the gap is much smaller than the radius of curvature. the shear rate. The extension ratio equals λ = R/Ro. It is easily seen that in the case under discussion . for example. and more important. Malkin 55 This condition is typical for flow in narrow gaps of bearings. if flow occurs in a very narrow gap between two coaxial cylinders. The directions along the radius of a sphere and tangential to its surface are principal directions because shear stresses and deformations are absent in thin shells. a sphere (balloon) filled with gas. 3. regardless of rheological properties of matter.g. having known pressure. shells. and for (R − Ro)/Ro<<1 we have: ε 2 = ε3 = r − Ro = λ −1 Ro where the directions 2 and 3 are tangential to the surface of the cover. The stress fields for some typical situations have been analyzed in Chapter 2.

If the values of principal extension ratios are λ 1 . if the cover is made out of rubber). Some general principles are worth citing because they apply to analysis of large deformations of rubbers.5 and we have ε1 = 1 −1 λ2 3.7. µ = 0. λ 2 . or the engineering deformations along principal axes are ε i *= λi −1 then the values of the Cauchy-Green and Finger tensors are: .and λ 3 .56 Deformation and deformation rate ∆V/V = 1 . Important to note is that consideration must be given to the real rheological properties of the material in question.(R2δ/R 2o δo) It means that R 2δ R 2o δ o = 2µ and δ δ o = 2µ(R o R) 2 = 2µ λ2 Then ε 1 = (δ − δ o ) δo = 2µ −1 λ2 If volume of a material under deformations is constant (for example.4 THREE-DIMENSIONAL DEFORMED STATE Many engineering applications can benefit from analysis of these relationships.

follows its behavior and treats the results of measurements in a fixed coordinate system. Description of all occurrences (including deformation itself) must be done in relation to a moving point. The boundary is determined by the value of relative displacement (or gradient of displacement). the equality λ 1λ 2λ 3 = 1 means that deformation proceeds without changes of volume. C3 = λ23 -2 -1 -2 -1 -2 C-1 1 = λ 1 . If displacements are inhomogeneous throughout a body. C 2 = λ22 . Hence it is necessary to know the rules . some new effects appear.17). Ya. C3 = λ 3 The first invariants of C and C-1 tensors are C I = (λ 1λ 2λ 3 ) 2 and C-1II = (λ 1λ 2λ 3 )-2 As discussed above (see Eq 3. physical phenomena occur at a site which moves and during deformation vacates its initial position. Hence the condition of constant volume in three-dimensional deformations of arbitrary type is: CI = C-1II = 1. it is reasonable to neglect the square of this value in comparison with the value itself. deformations can be treated as infinitesimally small. and the deformation by a vector of displacement and a radius-vector of a point. First of all.A. The relative displacement is described by a radius-vector of two points for which displacement is considered. carrying out experiments with a material. In this case. One can thus neglect all quadratic terms included in the relationship. If this value is small (<< 1). An observer. which is a dimensionless value. If large deformations are considered. Displacement is a vector.8 CONCLUDING REMARKS Action of outer forces results in displacement of the points of continuum. which also includes rotation of elements of a body as a whole. 3. which are the consequence of changes of infinitesimal distances between different points inside a body. Deformations can be small (or infinitesimally small) or large. and relative displacements appear. where the displacement occurs. Deformation is only a part of relative displacement. C 2 = λ 2 . but relative displacement and deformation are objects of tensorial nature. they lead to deformations. because to describe them both it is necessary to operate with two vectors.
