Material Voids in Elastic Solids With Anisotropic Surface Energies
Abstract: This work discusses the role of highly anisotropic interfacial energy for problems involving a material void in a linearly elastic solid. Using the calculus of variations it is shown that the qualitative features of the equilibrium shape of the void demonstrate a strong dependence on the smoothness and convexity of the interfacial energy.
