Then, to assess rock materials' constitutive behaviour, firstly, the elastic behaviour of material has been presented based on Hooke's elastic theory.
With a linear elastic theory of stress, the tensile Young's moduli, strains, and tensile strengths at the FJ were calculated.
The tensile-strength incidence mechanism of the FJ was analyzed with a linear elastic theory of stress.
The analysis of the XAFS and DAFS data enabled the development of a microscopic model that describes the local atomic distortions in strained films that is based on the random cluster approximation and the Keating valence force field within the context of macroscopic elastic theory (21).
It begins with the linear elastic theory and proceeds to include the effects of large deformations and inelastic behavior.
