Abstract:

Kirchhoffs uniqueness proof shows that, if the shear modulus is different from zero and Poissons ratio T lies in the interval -1, 12, the second boundary value problem in elasticity surface tractions prescribed has a unique solution up to a rigid body motion. A demonstration is given that for general domains uniqueness holds provided T lies in the interval -1, 1-K21 K, where K is a constant depending on the geometry of the region. If the bounding surface is star shaped, K is equal to zero. Author
