Appendix D Coordinate Expansions of Vector Differential Operators
This appendix provides Cartesian and cylindrical coordinate expansions of first- and second-order vector differential operators acting on scalar, vector, and dyadic operands. The divergence and curl of vector and dyadic fields and the gradient of scalar, vector, and dyadic fields are provided with applications cited for the curl of the strain dyadic and the gradient of the stress dyadic. In addition the scalar and vector Laplacian expansions are listed.
