Hooke's law of elasticity, Fourier's law of heat conduction, and Darcy's Law for fluid flow in porous media.
A material that exhibits nonlinear strain behavior and large deformations at small applied stresses is not adequately characterized by Hooke's law, and a functional expression is needed to describe its stress-strain relationship.
The constitutive model proposed in this paper is formulated using the generalized curvilinear form of Hooke's Law.
The material was also assumed to follow Hooke's Law, and frictional forces could be neglected due to the magnitude of this force being much less than the applied force [6].
