General equilibrium We will derive general equilibrium equation for a small cube in space The equation are partial differential equations The equation describe the spatial distribution of stresses Taylor series expansion will be used to describe the spatial variation in a small cube Higher-order terms (H.O.T.) can be deleted We will derive the equ. (3.5) through (3.24) The equation will be different in other coordinate system Application All continua materials : solid, fluid, artificial or biological materials No linearity and small strain requirement It does require equilibrium (this requirement will be avoided in fluid mechanics It is restricted to Cartesian coordinate
