ON A CLASS OF HIGHER-ORDER PSEUDO-RIGID BODIES
Math. Mech. Sol., 6, pp. 631-640, (2001)
A simple extension of the theory of pseudo-rigid bodies is proposed
to allow for spatially inhomogeneous deformations of polynomial type.
The kinematics of the admissible constrained motions and the corresponding
balance laws are presented and discussed. A simple steady motion of such
a higher-order elastic pseudo-rigid body is analyzed in detail to illustrate
the applicability of the extended theory.
