2-2) 46 4. Simple Fluids We turn now to the pure kinematics of motions with constant principal relative stretch histories. All such motions are characterized by the following Theorem. FUNDAMENTAL THEOREM (Noll). A motion is monotonous if and only if there are an orthogonal tensor Q(t), a scalar K, and a constant tensor No such that FO(T) = Q(r)etKN\ Q(0) = 1, |N 0 | = 1. 2-3) PROOF We begin from the hypothesis (1) and set R(s) = Co(-s) = Q(t)TCt(t - s)Q(t). 7-8),F r (r) = F 0 (r)F 0 (f)- ,so Q(t)H(s)Q(t)T = Ct(t - s) = [Fo(O r ]~ 1 Co(r- 5 )F 0 (rr 1 = [F 0 (0 T ]- 1 H(s-OFo(0" 1 .

It may or may not be isochoric, and afluidmay or may not be incompressible; the behavior of a compressible fluid in an isochoric flow is generally not at all the same as that of an incompressible fluid in the same flow. A constrained material is susceptible to a smaller class of deformations. Corresponding to this restriction, arbitrary stresses arise. Their presence makes a greater variety of response possible in those deformation that do occur. Consequently, solution of problems becomes easier.

J Principle of determinism The stress at the particle X in the body B at time t is determined by the history x r of the motion of B up to time t: T(X,0 = ^ ( x ' ; ^ 0 - (3-2-1) Here T is a functional in the most general sense of the term, namely a rule of correspondence. Equation (1) asserts that the motion of the body up to and including the present time determines a unique symmetric stress tensor T at each point of the body, and the manner in which it does so may depend upon X and t. The functional T is called the constitutive functional, and (1) is the constitutive equation of the ideal material defined by T.
