Some Elasticity Problems

1 Practical solutions of two-dimensional boundary-value problem in simply connected regions can be accomplished by numerous techniques. Those include: a) Finite-difference approximation of the differential equation, b) Complex function method of Muskhelisvili (most useful in problems with stress concentration), c) Variational methods (which will be covered in subsequent chapters), d) Semi-inverse methods, and e) Airy stress functions.

2 Only the last two methods will be discussed in this chapter.
