non-linear incremental elastic defor- mations. Plane strain perturbations are considered of a broad class of incompressible material behaviours /including hyper-, hypoelastic and &avier–1tokes constitutive equations3 within the elliptic range. &umerical treatment of the problem is detailed. A possibility of employingthe method in the fully non-linear range is outlined, which yields a boundary element approach where the use of domain integrals is avoided, atleast in a conventional sense. -hemethods for bifurcation and shear band analyses will be reported in Part II. 2((* 4lsevier 1cience B.5.

All rights reserved. 1. Introduction -he analysis of the response to perturbations of a pre-stressed, non-linear elastic solid is important in a broad range of technological circumstances. For instance, pre-stress affects the design of Microelectro- mechanical 1ystems 7$$8, it is a concern in the behaviour of geological formations 7*9,*98, biological tissues 7$(,$:8, and various structural elements, includingseismic insulators and rubber bearings 79,$98. Referringto plane strain deformations of incompressible materials, Biot 728 has shown that the incre- mental elastic response is

governed by two incremental moduli, functions of the current stretch. Biot constitutive framework was assumed by Bigoni and Capuani 7$8 to obtain a .reen s function and a boundary integral formulation for incremental deformations superimposed upon a given, homogeneous strain. Both .reen s function and integral formulation provide the basis to build a boundary element Correspondingauthor. -el.: ;*9-(:6$-992-5(7) fax: ;*9-(:6$-992-599.

technique for solvingincremental problems of non-linear elasticity. -his is the purpose of the article. In particular, we formulate a general numerical scheme to handle generic boundary value problems with prescribed nominal tractions andAor displacements. Dhen restricted to perturbations of homogeneously deformed,incompressiblesolids,ourboundaryelementstechniqueretains

allwell-knownadvantagesofthe small strain formulation. -hese are: discretization only of the boundary of the body) automatic satisfaction of the incompressibility constraint) possibility of describingsingularities arisingnear corner points of the boundary) possibility of employing meshes thoroughly varying in size throughout the body. 1everal attempts can be found in the literature to analyze non-linear problems usingboundary elements techniques. In some cases the non-linearities were related to the material 7:,5,2(,*:,:$8, in other cases to large elastic 72:,*$,*58 or elastoplastic

76–9,$2,$7,29–*(8 strains. In all cases, in addition to the usual boundary integrals, a domain integral is introduced, leading to the so-called field-boundary element method . -he introduction of this term nullifies a main advantage of B4M and originates from the dis- crepancy between the non-linear character of the equations governing the problem and the employed fundamental solution /usually referringto linear, isotropic elasticity3. In the present paper, the focus is on incrementally-linear problems, so that domain integrals do not appear in the formulation that will be

presented. Fowever, we believe that the solution of incrementally linear problems should be regarded as the first step toward the analysis of fully non-linear situations and, in particular, we anticipate with a simple example that when employed as a tool to analyze large /thus non-linear3 deformations, our incre- mental method naturally leads to a volume discretization different––in essence––from all those already known. -he paper is organized as follows: the incremental constitutive framework––which includes hyper- and hypoelasticity and the equations governing 1tokes flow

of fluids––is presented in 1ection 2 for plane strain, whereas the fundamental solution and boundary integral equations are summarized in 1ection *. -he boundary element formulation is presented in 1ection : and the discretization detailed in subsequent 1ection 5. A numerical example is given in 1ection 6, which offers the simplest context to illustrate the capability of the method to computationally follow a non-linear path of deformation. 1ystematic investi- gations of bifurcation and shear band phenomena in two-dimensional elastic materials will be reported in Part II. 2.

Incremental constitutive equations -he general expression given by Biot 728 for rate constitutive equations of an incompressible material incrementally deformed in plane strain are obtained here with reference to a broad class of material be- haviours.

It is expedient now to transform the constitutive equation /223 in terms of material derivative of the nominal stress tensor . In particular, a Lagrangean formulation of field equations is employed in the following, with the current state taken as reference. As a

consequence, constitutive equations /223 become ij ijkl ij ijkl pd ij 56 M) Brun et al) / ,omput) Met-ods .ppl) Mec-) Engrg) 1/( 0(0031 (421–(47/ 2:69

lustratingwith a simple example that our formulation does not involve domain integrals.

In that case, however, specific manipulations of the domain integrals are requested to transform

these to boundary integrals, while in our method domain integrals are simply absent.
