A method is presented for the explicit construction of the non-dimensional constant occurring in Korn’s inequalities for a bounded two-dimensional Riemannian differentiable simply connected manifold subject to Dirichlet boundary conditions. The method is illustrated by application to the spherical cap and minimal surface.
