Saint-Venant's Principle


The principle of the elastic equivalence of statically equivalent systems of load, or Saint-Venant's Principle, is given a precise mathematical formulation and proof. Counterexamples to traditional verbal statements of the principle are given, and the results are compared with previous mathematical work on the Saint-Venant principle.
