On universal relations in continuum mechanics

  • Edvige Pucci
  • Giuseppe Saccomandi

This paper is devoted to a systematic study of local universal relations in continuum mechanics. We show that it is possible to determine the complete set of independent universal relations whose characterization is obtained by linear universal rules. A historical review of the literature on the topic and various significant examples are given.
