THE INCREMENTAL SHEAR MODULUS IN AN INCOMPRESSIBLE ELASTIC MATERIAL

The incremental shear modulus is calculated for infinitesimal shear of an incompressible isotropic elastic material in a state of pure homogeneous deformation. Necessary and sufficient conditions that it be positive are obtained. These conditions are related to the Hadamard conditions for propagation of a wave of infinitesimal amplitude in the deformed material.
