Base class for constitutive (stressstrain) relations that characterize the elastic properties of a material.
A constitutive relation, in the context of elasticity, relates the Stress \(T^{ij}\) and Strain \(S_{ij}=\nabla_{(i}u_{j)}\) within an elastic material (see Elasticity). For small stresses it is approximated by the linear relation
\[ T^{ij} = Y^{ijkl}S_{kl} \]
(Eq. 11.17 in [124]) that is referred to as Hooke's law. The constitutive relation in this linear approximation is determined by the elasticity (or Young's) tensor \(Y^{ijkl}=Y^{(ij)(kl)}=Y^{klij}\) that generalizes a simple proportionality to a threedimensional and (possibly) anisotropic material.
