Growth and decay estimates are derived for an incompressible homogeneous isotropic elastic material occupying a plane semi-infinite strip in equilibrium under self-equilibrated loads on the base and zero traction along the lateral sides. The estimates depend upon a pair of differential inequalities for two cross-sectional line integrals related to different kinds of energy fluxes. A comparison with the exact solution shows that the estimates are somewhat conservative. The method, however, is applicable to non-rectangular plane regions.
