Simple Derivation of the Maxwell Stress Tensor and Electrostrictive Effects in Crystals
Juretschke, H. J.
American Journal of Physics, 45, 3, 277-280, Mar 77
Shows that local equilibrium and energy considerations in an elastic dielectric crystal lead to a simple derivation of the Maxwell stress tensor in anisotropic dielectric solids. The resulting equilibrium stress-strain relations are applied to determine the deformations of a charged parallel plate capacitor. (MLH)
