A relatively good coincidence between experimental data and theoretical results was found in case studies, which confirms the validity of the model in considering brittle constitutive relations under thermal-mechanical action.
These models have been set up and adopted primarily to describe the constitutive characteristics of materials at the macroscale; nevertheless, the so-called size effects, including geometry size, grain size, and grained inhomogeneity effects, cannot be negligible when constructing constitutive models will be applied on the microscale.
The constitutive model based on statistical damage theory cannot accurately reflect this phenomenon.
the connection between an individual's constitutive nature and its
Weber meant that a researcher's own personal values should not obscure their understanding of how the facts and values of the people they were researching were linked (i.e., mutually constitutive).
Constitutive goods, as fundamental objects of strong evaluation, have two key functions in the ethical life.
He stressed that according to BDI the best is to end the ongoing constitutive meeting no matter how long it takes.
Ile and Reynouard (2000) proposed a constitutive model for predicting the cyclic response of reinforced concrete structures; the model adopted the concept of a smeared crack approach with orthogonal fixed cracks and assumed a plane stress condition; this model was compared with experimental results of a shear wall tested at NUPEC's Tadotsu Engineering Laboratory and finally after several models and comparisons the numerical results showed good correlation between the predicted and the actual response [3].
Identically, plane-strain biaxial compression tests on brittle and ductile geomaterials are also limited, although studies have been done to explore the stress-strain behavior and constitutive model of geomaterials under biaxial stress state since 1969 [2, 25-29].
More specifically, this slab with specific constitutive parameters can make TE waves totally reflected and TM waves totally transmitted, while, with the other specific constitutive parameters, we can get TM waves totally reflected and TE waves totally transmitted.
In 1972, Ogden [14,15] proposed a strain energy function expressed in terms of principal stretches, which is probably the best known example for the principal stretch-based constitutive formulations consistent with the Valanis-Landel hypothesis.
A physically-based mathematical model relating stress and deformation is called constitutive equation.
