Abstract: For a compressible isotropic elastic solid local and global non-uniqueness of the homogeneous deformation resulting from prescribed dead-load boundary tractions is examined. In particular, for the plane-strain problem with equibiaxial in-plane tension, equations governing the paths of deformation branching from the bifurcation point on a deformation path corresponding to in-plane pure dilatation are derived. Explicit calculations are given for a specific strain-energy function and the stability of the branches is discussed. Some general results are then given for an arbitrary form of strain-energy function.
