Bounds on the trace mapping of LD-fields Academic Article uri icon


  • Bounds on the trace mappings defined on the Sobolev space W"1^1(@W) and the space LD(@W) of integrable strains are obtained. In the mechanics of continuous media, such bounds correspond to stress concentration-the ratio between the maximal stress in a body and the maximum of the traction applied to its boundary. The analysis leading to the bounds may be described in the mechanical context of stress theory and stress concentration.
