Principles of Hyperplasticity: An Approach to Plasticity Theory Based on Thermodynamic Principles by Guy T. Houlsby
English | 30 Nov. 2006 | ISBN: 184628239X | 362 Pages | PDF | 9 MB
The approach to plasticity theory developed here is firmly rooted in thermodynamics. Emphasis is placed on the use of potentials and the derivation of incremental response, necessary for numerical analysis. The derivation of constitutive models for irreversible behaviour entirely from two scalar potentials is shown.
