A pr 2 01 0 Athermal Nonlinear Elastic Constants of Amorphous Solids

Abstract

We derive expressions for the lowest nonlinear elastic constants of amorphous solids in athermal conditions (up to third order), in terms of the interaction potential between the constituent particles. The effect of these constants cannot be disregarded when amorphous solids undergo instabilities like plastic flow or fracture in the athermal limit; in such… (More)
