Abstract : IN PREVIOUS PAPERS (AD-265 817) the authors established some new variational principles in the linear theory of elasticity for isotropic nonhomogeneous bodies with prescribed surface displacements. These have been applied to the theory of the elastic behavior of multiphase materials. Work is concerned with the generalization of these principles to anisotropic and nonhomogeneous elasticity and the establishment of similar variational principles for a body with prescribed surface tractions. The second part deals with the application of these variational principles to the theory of the elastic behavior of polycrystals. (Author)
