Abstract : The author is concerned with a class of extensions of known variational principles for boundary value problems of differential equations of elasticity. The principal purpose of the note is the formulation of two variational equations in which the three moment equilibrium equations for components of stress are Euler equations of a variational principle rather than equations of definition.
