Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

A modification of the material law associated with the well-known Biot system as suggested by Murad and Cushman (Int. J. Eng. Sci. 1996; 34(3):313-338) and first investigated by Showalter (J. Math. Anal. Appl. 2000; 251(1):310-340) is reconsidered, generalized and analysed in the light of a new approach to a comprehensive class of evolutionary problems. The framework allows a uniform approach to problems involving general anisotropic, inhomogeneous, non-smooth media thus covering, for example, transmission problems in layered materials.
