## What is/are Isotropic Solids?

Isotropic Solids - Carboxylic acid groups were introduced into polystyrene, and the effect both on melt rheology and on mechanical properties of stretched and quenched anisotropic solids below the glass-transition temperature (Tg) was investigated.^{[1]}Among the numerical approaches to fracture mechanics analysis of cracked anisotropic solids, the boundary element method is notable for high accuracy and performance due to its semi-analytical nature and the use of only boundary mesh.

^{[2]}This article presents a general theory on dislocation loops in multilayered anisotropic solids with magneto-electro-elastic couplings.

^{[3]}The effectiveness of the micropolar model to represent the behavior of materials made of particles of prominent size has been widely proved in the literature, in this paper we focus on the capability of this model to grossly capture the behavior of anisotropic solids under concentrated pressures.

^{[4]}The paper describes a method for determining a stress-strain state of transversally isotropic solids of revolution, which are simultaneously influenced by external pressure and a body force within a steady-state temperature field.

^{[5]}From the elastic mechanics theory for anisotropic solids, the degradation model of tensile strength exposed to elevated temperature was confirmed.

^{[6]}The main purpose of this study is to present a complete general solution for the Lord–Shulman non-classical equations of thermoelasticity for three-dimensional transversely isotropic solids.

^{[7]}Wave energy in anisotropic solids generally propagate along curved lines and forms non-circular wave fronts.

^{[8]}Numerical analyses show that a microelastic energy function dependent on a shear deformation measure in which rotational degrees of freedom of the particles are not included, leads to a model not capable to describe properly the elastic behavior of isotropic solids subjected to non-homogeneous deformation fields.

^{[9]}Using lubrication theory for low-Reynolds-number flows and the theory for linearly elastic isotropic solids, we obtain perturbative solutions for the flow and deformation.

^{[10]}It can also be used to deal with nonlinear acoustic wave in anisotropic solids without modification.

^{[11]}Corresponding boundary integral equations are obtained for anisotropic solids with thread-like inclusions.

^{[12]}An analytical model based on the thermal conduction theory of anisotropic solids is proposed to predict the electrical conductivity of general multi-layered and multi-directional CNT webs.

^{[13]}HighlightsDPSM is extended to model elastic wave propagation in anisotropic solids with defects.

^{[14]}This study presents a unified approach to derive the acoustic nonlinearity parameter induced by dislocation motion in isotropic solids.
