On Some Global Identification Problems in Rheology of Solids

  • Mircea Predeleanu
  • Marc Dahan


As it’s known, the most parametric identification techniques in Rheology of Solids are based on experiments with specimens as bars, rods, tubes and beams by using a very simplified formulation of the corresponding inverse problem. The resulting stress field is homogeneous and it don’t verify all boundary conditions, only globally. To reproduce in laboratory a quasi-homogeneous stress field, geometrical restrictions on specimens must be imposed but which can’t be accomplished for heterogeneous materials like soils rocks, composites.
