Reference [1] Timoshenko S, Goodier JN. Theory of elasticity. 2nd ed. New York: McGraw-Hill; 1951. 1 A metal plate has rectangular axes Ox, Oy marked on its surface. The point O and the direction of Ox are fixed in space and the plate is subjected to the following uniform stresses: Compressive, 3p, parallel to Ox, Tensile, 2p, parallel to Oy, Shearing, 4p, in planes parallel to Ox and Oy, in a sense tending to decrease the angle xOy. Determine the direction in which a certain point on the plate is displaced; the coordinates of the point are (2, 3) before straining.

However, in some problems, the shape of the body and the applied loading allow simplifying assumptions to be made, thereby enabling a solution to be obtained. St. Venant suggested a semi-inverse method for the solution of this type of problem, in which assumptions are made as to stress or displacement components.
