Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

In this paper we study the behavior of an isotropic homogeneous material with strain-stress relation {Mathematical expression} when μ tends to zero by using a decomposition of a Hilbert space and a minimization problem of an energy functional in some subspace. The existence and uniqueness of the solution of the differential system in this limiting case subject to certain boundary condition is also obtained in this work.
