Elastic Solids and Fluids — Hyperelastic Solids — Lesson 3

The previous lesson discussed the constitutive relations for ideal and non-ideal fluids. In this lesson, the discussion for fluids will continue and the discussion on constitutive relations for solids will be started. The notion of elastic solid is discussed first and the hyperelastic model of solid is explained. Similarly, the concept of an elastic fluid is explained. The notion of hypo-elastic solid is also shown.
