- An infinite body has a uniform state stress of pure hydrostatic pressure . This stress state is perturbed by a spherical void of radius which leads to a new stress state

- What do you expect the values of , , and to be? What is the stress concentration factor at the void?

- What are the displacement conditions for antiplane strain in rectangular co- ordinates? Give an example of a problem that can be approximated by antiplane strain.

- What are the strain conditions for plane strain in rectangular co-ordinates? Give an example of a problem that can be approximated by plane strain. What is the difference between plane strain and generalized plane strain?

- What are the stress conditions for plane stress in rectangular co-ordinates? Give an example of a problem that can be approximated by plane stress.

- Can the Airy stress function be used for three-dimensional problems? Write down the relation between the Airy stress function and stress in rectangular co-ordinates. How does this relation change when you solve problems that involve a body force? What additional restriction on the Airy stress function must be checked to see if compatibility is satisfied?

- In the absence of body forces, the displacements (plane strain/stress) can be expressed as

- What is and what are the restrictions on it?
