In order to establish a solution in continuum mechanics, three basic sets of relations have to be ful—lled: (1) equilibrium conditions, which guarantee that the body is always in equilibrium; (2) compatibility conditions, which guarantee that the body remains continuous; and (3) constitutive relations, which connect stresses and strains of a material behavior. These relations can be expressed in tensor notations as follows.
