    A class of conformally flat spacetimes that admit certain decomposable world-spin affine patterns is considered. New coordinate-derivative relations are particularly utilized to demonstrate that the procedures involved in a well-known spinor translation of the corresponding Riemann and Ricci...

    The functional relationship between two symmetric second-rank tensors is considered. A new interpretation of the components of the tensors as projections onto an orthogonal tensor basis is given. It is shown that the constitutive relations can be written in the form of six functions each of...

    Continuous and discrete Fourier transforms (CFT and DFT, respectively) are used to derive a Formal solution for the Founrier transforms of stresses and strains that develop in elastically homogeneous but arbitrarily eigen-strained linear-elastic bodies. The solution is then specialized to the...

    This paper presents a mathematical programming based approach for the analysis of elastoplastic softening frames in the presence of geometric nonlinearity. Arbitrarily large deformations, albeit within a small strain regime, can be accommodated, if necessary. For the sake of efficiency, and...

    BSTRACT In this paper, a POD-based ensemble four-dimensional variational data assimilation method (referred to as PODEn4DVar) is proposed on the basis of the proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) and ensemble forecasting techniques. The ensemble forecasts are conducted to obtain the model...

    The elastoplastic deformation of an isotropic material is described using constitutive equations and allowing for the stress mode. The equations include two nonlinear functions that relate the first and second invariants of the stress and linear-strain tensors to the stress mode angle. It is...
