We consider the problem of mass reduction for elastic bodies by appearance of cavities. In this work, this problem is related to the minimization of a surface energy, depending on the stress tensor in the original equilibrium configuration. Special cases of mechanical interest are also analysed.

Abstract

We consider the problem of mass reduction for elastic bodies by appearance of cavities. In this work, this problem is related to the minimization of a surface energy, depending on the stress tensor in the original equilibrium configuration. Special cases of mechanical interest are also analysed.
