Inspired by Frensnel's luminiferous aether theory, numerous dynamical theories of elastic solid aether were established by Stokes, Canchy, Green, MacCullagh, Boussinesq, Riemann and William Thomson.
When a penny-shaped crack embedded in an infinite elastic medium is subjected to uniform tension, one of the stress components at a general point in the interior of the elastic solid has the following form [49],
When chains percolate, the liquid with a yield point becomes an elastic solid.
In this first volume, he determines the thermal stresses acting in the isotropic multi-particle matrix system using eight different mathematical techniques to generate eight different linear differential equations with non-zero right sides related to the radial displacement of an arbitrary point in the isotropic elastic solid continuum.
When a substance gels, it changes from a free-flowing liquid to an elastic solid.
A white transparent soft elastic solid is obtained after filtration and subsequent drying at 40[degrees]C in the vacuum oven overnight.
What we've learned is that in some materials--but we think all materials--even at temperatures well below the transition where the materials acts like a glassy elastic solid, the surface doesn't, he explains.
They can also design the porous elastic solid such that it responds dynamically to temperature, light, magnetic or electric fields, chemical signals, pressure, or other environmental conditions, he said.
This report on natural rubber covers the elastic solid substance via processing of natural rubber latex collected from Hevea brasiliensis.
Shapiro and Kaselow (2005) extended the theory to the case where the pore-filling material is an anisotropic elastic solid.
