In this lesson, we will look at the linear elliptic PDE with the vector variable in 3D. Specifically, we will look at the linearized elasticity. The constitutive relation between Cauchy stress and strain is established through the elasticity tensor. The kinematic relation for the strain is defined as well. In this lesson, we also address the direct notation of the strong form linearized elasticity. The symmetry of the elasticity tensor will be discussed.
