  journal={arXiv: Analysis of PDEs},
We reconsider anti-plane shear deformations of the form $\varphi(x)=(x_1,\,x_2,\,x_3+u(x_1,x_2))$ based on prior work of Knowles and relate the existence of anti-plane shear deformations to fundamental constitutive concepts of elasticity theory like polyconvexity, rank-one convexity and tension-compression symmetry. In addition, we provide finite-element simulations to visualize our theoretical findings. 
Global Bifurcation of Anti-plane Shear Fronts
For a class of generalized neo-Hookean strain energy densities and live body forces, this work constructs unbounded curves of front-type solutions using global bifurcation theory and finds some of these curves contain solutions with deformations of arbitrarily large magnitude.

In a 2012 article in the International Journal of Non-Linear Mechanics, Destrade et al. showed that for nonlinear elastic materials satisfying Truesdell’s so-called empirical inequalities, the


Remarks on Analytic Solutions and Ellipticity in Anti-plane Shear Problems of Nonlinear Elasticity
This paper revisits a well-studied anti-plane shear deformation problem formulated by Knowles in 1976. It shows that a homogenous hyper-elasticity for general anti-plane shear deformation must be
Injectivity of the Cauchy-stress tensor along rank-one connected lines under strict rank-one convexity condition
In this note, we show that the Cauchy stress tensor σ$\sigma$ in nonlinear elasticity is injective along rank-one connected lines provided that the constitutive law is strictly rank-one convex. This

This note is a response to G. Saccomandi’s recent challenge by showing basic mistakes in his conclusions. The proof is elementary, but leads to some fundamental results in correctly understanding an
Geometry of Logarithmic Strain Measures in Solid Mechanics
AbstractWe consider the two logarithmic strain measures $$\begin{array}{ll} {\omega_{\mathrm{iso}}} = ||{{\mathrm dev}_n {\mathrm log} U} || = ||{{\mathrm dev}_n {\mathrm log} \sqrt{F^TF}}|| \quad

Analytical solutions to general anti-plane shear problems in finite elasticity
This paper presents a pure complementary energy variational method for solving a general anti-plane shear problem in finite elasticity. Based on the canonical duality–triality theory developed by the
The Exponentiated Hencky-Logarithmic Strain Energy. Part I: Constitutive Issues and Rank-One Convexity
We investigate a family of isotropic volumetric-isochoric decoupled strain energies $$\begin{aligned} F\mapsto W_{\mathrm{eH}}(F):=\widehat{W}_{\mathrm{eH}}(U):=\left \{ \begin{array}{l@{\quad}l}
The Anti-Plane Shear Problem in Nonlinear Elasticity Revisited
A classical problem in the framework of nonlinear elasticity theory is the characterization of the materials that may sustain a pure state of anti-plane shear in the absence of body forces. This
Linear and nonlinear elasticity imaging of soft tissue in vivo: demonstration of feasibility.
The feasibility of imaging the linear and nonlinear elastic properties of soft tissue using ultrasound using ultrasound is established and it is conjectured that these properties may be used to discern malignant tumors from benign tumors.
