About this book

Introduction

This book provides a unified theory of nonlinear electro-magnetomechanical interactions of soft materials capable of large elastic deformations. The authors include an overview of the basic principles of the classical theory of electromagnetism from the fundamental notions of point charges and magnetic dipoles through to distributions of charge and current in a non-deformable continuum, time-dependent electromagnetic fields and Maxwell’s equations. They summarize the basic ingredients of continuum mechanics that are required to account for the deformability of material and present nonlinear constitutive frameworks for electroelastic and magnetoelastic interactions in a highly deformable material. The equations contained in the book are used to formulate and solve a variety of representative boundary-value problems for both nonlinear electroelasticity and magnetoelasticity.
