The Poisson function of finite elasticity. (English) Zbl 0606.73037
The Poisson function is introduced to study in a simple tension test the lateral contractive response of compressible and incompressible, isotropic elastic materials in finite strain. The relation of the Poisson function to the classical Poisson ratio and its behavior for certain constrained materials are discussed.
