Reference frame (coordinate system): R Reference state (initial configuration):  0 State of the medium at time t:  t –Position (at t), particle path –displacement (t 0 and t), –Velocity (at time t) –Strain (changes in length of lines, angles between lines, volume) A. Describing the transformation of a body

A.1 Lagrangian parametrisation Displacements Trajectories Streamlines

Volume Change A.1 Lagrangian parametrisation

A.2 Eulerian parametrisation Trajectories: Streamlines: (at time t)

A.3 Stationary Velocity Field Velocity is independent of time NB: If the motion is stationary in the chosen reference frame then trajectories=streamlines

B. Homogeneous Tansformation definition

Homogeneous Transformation Changing reference frame

Homogeneous Transformation Convective transport of a vector Implication: Straight lines remain straight during deformation

Homogeneous transformation Convective transport of a volume

Homogeneous transformation Convective transport of a surface

Tangent Homogeneous Deformation Any transformation can be approximated locally by its tangent homogeneous transformation

Tangent Homogeneous Deformation Any transformation can be approximated locally by its tangent homogeneous transformation

Tangent Homogeneous Deformation Displacement field

D. Strain during homogeneous Deformation The Cauchy strain tensor (or expansion tensor)

Strain during homogeneous Deformation Stretch (or elongation) in the direction of a vector

Strain during homogeneous Deformation Stretch (or elongation) in the direction of a vector Extension (or extension ratio), relative length change

Strain during homogeneous Deformation Change of angle between 2 initially orthogonal vectors Shear angle

Strain during homogeneous Deformation Signification of the strain tensor components

Strain during homogeneous Deformation An orthometric reference frame can be found in which the strain tensor is diagonal. This define the 3 principal axes of the strain tensor.

Strain during homogeneous Deformation The Green-Lagrange strain tensor (strain tensor)

Strain during homogeneous Deformation The Green-Lagrange strain tensor

Rigid Body Transformation Strain during homogeneous Deformation

Rigid Body Transformation Strain during homogeneous Deformation

Polar factorisation Strain during homogeneous Deformation

Polar factorisation Strain during homogeneous Deformation

Pure deformation: The principal strain axes remain parallel to themselves during deformation Strain during homogeneous Deformation

D. Some properties of homogeneous Deformation

Some properties of homogeneous Deformation The strain tensor is uniquely characterized by the strain ellipsoid (a sphere with unit radius in the initial configuration)

Some properties of homogeneous Deformation The strain tensor is uniquely characterized by the strain ellipsoid (a sphere with unit radius in the initial configuration)

Some properties of homogeneous Deformation The Mohr Circle for finite strain

Some properties of homogeneous Deformation The Mohr Circle for finite strain

Note that knowing the strain tensor associated to an homogeneous transformation does not define the uniquely the transformation (the translation and the rotation terms remain undetermined) Some properties of homogeneous Deformation

Classification of strain The Flinn diagram characterizes the ellipticity of strain (for constant volume deformation: )

E. Infinitesimal transformation

Infinitesimal strain tensor

Infinitesimal transformation

Relation between the infinitesimal strain tensor and displacement gradient

NB: The representation of principal extensions on this diagram is correct only for infinitesimal strain only The strain ellipse

Rk: For an infinitesimal deformation the principal extensions are small (typically less than 1%). The strain ellipse are close to a circle. For visualisation the strain ellipse is represented with some exaggeration

Relation between the infinitesimal strain tensor and displacement gradient

F. Finite, infinitesimal and progressive deformation –Finite deformation is said to be non-rotational if the principle strain axis in the initial and final configurations are parallel. This characterizes only how the final state relates to the initial state –Finite deformation of a body is the result of a deformation path (progressive deformation). –There is an infinity of possible deformation paths to reach a particular finite strain. –Generally, infinitesimal strain (or equivalently the strain rate tensor) is used to describe incremental deformation of a body that has experienced some finite strain –A progressive deformation is said to be coaxial if the principal axis of the infinitesimal strain tensor remain parallel to the principal axis of the finite strain tensor. This characterizes the deformation path.

x= S X + c Non-rotational transformation a b A B

Non-rotational non-coaxial progressive transformation Stage 1: Stage 2: a b A B

If A and B are parallel to a and b respectively the deformation is said to be non-rotational (This means R= 1) Rotational vs non-rotational deformation

NB: Uniaxial strain is a type a non-rotational deformation Uniaxial strain

Pure Shear NB: Pure shear in is a type a non-rotational deformation (plane strain, 2 =1)

Simple Shear NB: Simple shear is rotational (Plane strain,  2 =1)

Progressive simple Shear Progressive simple shear is non coaxial

Progressive pure shear Progressive pure shear is a type of coaxial strain
