Description - Non-Linear Theory of Elasticity and Optimal Design by L. W. Ratner
In order to select an optimal structure among possible similar structures, one needs to compare the elastic behavior of the structures. A new criterion that describes elastic behavior is the rate of change of deformation. Using this criterion, the safe dimensions of a structure that are required by the stress distributed in a structure can be calculated. This text explores the non-linear theory of elasticity that allows one to determine the actual individual limit of elasticity/failure of a structure, using a simple non-destructive method of measurement of deformation on the model of a structure.
