Conservation laws in transversely isotropic linear elastic materials

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

2 Scopus citations


We find and classify all conservation laws in transversely isotropic linear elastic materials. The complete family of laws is generated by the family of laws which exist for all linear elastic materials and two laws which are generalizations of those found in isotropic materials. One of these latter conservation laws is new. In the case that a certain degeneracy condition exists, there are two more previously unknown laws. There are no further conservation laws unless the material is equivalent under a general linear change of variables to an isotropic material.
