The Kinematics of Growth

Chapter
Part of the Interdisciplinary Applied Mathematics book series (IAM, volume 45)

Abstract

In the previous chapter, we have defined general kinematics for the deformations of three-dimensional bodies in Euclidean spaces, We can generalize and adapt these methods to describe growth processes changing the shape and volume of a body and quantify the stresses generated through these processes.
