Generalized Hooke's Law in Stiffness form derivation?
I need to derive the matrix form of the stiffness for the generalized Hooke's Law starting from:
[epsilon]=1/E[C][sigma] for the normal stresses only (Isotropic material)
Basically, I need to end up with the same equation but with [sigma] on the LHS. So, starting from strain on LHS and ending up with stress on LHS.
I thought I would get it through inverting the compliance matrix, but I don't seem to be able to.
Can someone show me how it's done.
