JCMsuite can solve linear problems of continuum mechanics. The equations governing linear elasticity follow from the minimum principle for the elastic energy:

equation: linear elasticity

subject to fixed or free displacement boundary conditions. The quantities are

Cijkl  - stiffness tensor

   εij  - linear strain

ε(init) - prescribed initial strain

     ui - initial displacement

     Fi - intitial force,

and the linear strain ε relates to the displacement u by

linear strain
