This publication makes a speciality of the theoretical features of small pressure idea of elastoplasticity with hardening assumptions. It offers a entire and unified remedy of the mathematical idea and numerical research. it really is divided into 3 elements, with the 1st half offering an in depth creation to plasticity, the second one half protecting the mathematical research of the pliancy challenge, and the 3rd half dedicated to blunders research of assorted semi-discrete and completely discrete approximations for variational formulations of the elastoplasticity. This revised and improved variation contains fabric on single-crystal and strain-gradient plasticity. moreover, the whole publication has been revised to make it extra available to readers who're actively fascinated about computations yet much less so in numerical analysis.
Reviews of previous edition:
“The authors have written an exceptional publication which are advised for experts in plasticity who desire to recognize extra concerning the mathematical conception, in addition to people with a historical past within the mathematical sciences who search a self-contained account of the mechanics and arithmetic of plasticity theory.”
“In precis, the e-book represents a magnificent finished assessment of the mathematical method of the speculation and numerics of plasticity. Scientists in addition to teachers and graduate scholars will locate the ebook very invaluable as a reference for examine or for getting ready classes during this field.” (Technische Mechanik)
"The booklet is professionally written and may be an invaluable connection with researchers and scholars attracted to mathematical and numerical difficulties of plasticity. It represents an enormous contribution within the zone of continuum mechanics and numerical analysis." (Math stories)
