We consider a three-dimensional elastic body whose material response function depends not only on the gradient of the deformation, but also on its second gradient. Using the elastic energy-momentum tensor as derived by Eshelby 2 we generalize a well-known uniqueness result of Knops and Stuart 8 for a Dirichlet boundary value problem associated with this response function.
