In Hypo-elastic constitutive models an objective rate of the Cauchy stress tensor is expressed in terms of the current state of the stress and the deformation rate tensor D in a way that the dependency on the latter is a homogeneously linear one. In this work, a type of grade-one hypo-elastic models (i.e. models with linear dependency of the hypo-elasticity tensor on the stress) is considered for isotropic materials based on the objective corotational rates of stress. A positive real parameter denoted by n is involved in the considered type. Different values can be selected for this parameter, each selection leads to a specific model within the class of grade-one hypo-elasticity. The spin of...

The mathematical formulation for material growth and remodeling processes in finite deformation is developed based on the couple stress theory. The generalized continuum mechanics of couple stress theory is capable of capturing small-scale cellular effects and of modeling mass flux in these processes. The frame-indifferent balance equations of mass, linear and angular momentums, as well as internal energy together with the entropy inequality are first introduced in the presence of the mass flux based on the finite couple-stress theory. Then, within the framework of material uniformity the Eshelby and Mandel stress tensors as driving or configurational forces for local rearrangement of the...
