Paper Abstract

With the development of new materials, the study of the interaction of multi-physical fields is more and more important. Many experiments have shown that chemo-mechanical coupling exists in a lot of smart materials. In this paper, a theoretical model is proposed for the uniaxial strain state of chemo-mechanical materials. It is assumed that the smart material is an isotropic continuum. Based on the coupled governing equations, the displacement function and concentration function are derived and then the stress and chemical potential are obtained. This study not only reveals the mechanism of chemo-mechanics, but also provides a foundation to the numerical simulation.
