Many practical problems exist where the geometry of part or all of a boundary of a body, or the interface between bodies, alters with changes in loading. Such practical problems occur in soil mechanics, granular reinforced matrices media, geophysics, reinforced concrete, and at metal connections. This paper presents a common theory to deal with such diverse situations falling within the context of the title. The theory includes both conditions where interface friction occurs and where a continuum under body forces is attained by an incremental process.
