A simple form of consistency relations between generalized forces and displacements for systems exhibiting power-law behavior is presented. The later discussion focuses on certain details regarding applications of the relations to nonlinear fracture mechanics, emphasizing the finite element analysis of a single edge-cracked strip subjected to remote tension under plane strain conditions.
