Another Look at the Evolution of Material Structures
Mathematics and Mechanics of Solids
The evolution of a distribution of material inhomogeneities is investigated by analyzing the evolution of the corresponding material connection. Some general relations describing how the deformation of a material G-structure modifies the material connection associated with it are derived. These relations are then analyzed for different material isotropy groups.
