Homework Help: Example from book: continuum mechanics for engineers 2 edition

  1. Sep 25, 2008 #1
    example 3.30:
    Let the stress tensor components σij be derivable from the symmetric
    tensor field φij by the equation σij = εiqkεjpmφkm,qp. Show that, in the
    absence of body forces, the equilibrium equations are satisfied.

    I don't have any idea have to solve this problem. Can someone help me?
    Thank you.

    I apologize for bad placed post.
    After some time I solve this example. Use the determinant and kronecker delta. After this I found that εiqkεjpm = 0.
