The Kinematics of Growth

  • Alain Goriely
Part of the Interdisciplinary Applied Mathematics book series (IAM, volume 45)


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.
