Finite strain solutions for a compressible elastic solid. (English) Zbl 0716.73037
Summary: Several closed form finite strain equilibrium solutions are presented for a special compressible isotropic elastic material which was proposed as a model for foam rubber by P. J. Blatz and W. L. Ko [Trans. Soc. Rheol. 6, 223-251 (1962)]. These solutions include bending of a cylindrical sector into another sector or a rectangular block, bending of a block into a sector, expansion, compaction or eversion of cylinders or spheres, and torsion and extension of circular cylinders or tubes.
