This is framed in the setting of anisotropic elasticity where the response function depends on the first gradient of deformations, typically augmented by the constraints of bulk incompressibility and/or fiber inextensibility. The latter condition often results highly constrained prediction models so that the corresponding deformation fields are essentially kinematically determinate, especially that arises in fibers [6, 7].

[N.sub.s] is the number density of "slip-links," [alpha] and [eta] are parameters representing the degree of inextensibility of the chains and the slip link mobility, respectively.
To keep the inextensibility of the filament, a (relatively) large stiffness coefficient is applied.
High modulus indicates inextensibility while a low modulus represents great extensibility.
