Description

Understanding the elastoplastic deformation of metals and geomaterials, including the constitutive description of the materials and analysis of structure undergoing plastic deformation, is an essential part of the background required by mechanical, civil, and geotechnical engineers as well as materials scientists. However, most books address the subject at a introductory level and within the infinitesimal strain context.

Elastoplasticity Theory takes a different approach in an advanced treatment presented entirely within the framework of finite deformation. This comprehensive, self-contained text includes an introduction to nonlinear continuum mechanics and nonlinear elasticity. In addition to in-depth analysis of the mathematical and physical theories of plasticity, it furnishes an up-to-date look at contemporary topics, such as plastic stability and localization, monocrystalline plasticity, micro-to-macro transition, and polycrysalline plasticity models.

Elastoplasticity Theory reflects recent trends and advances made in the theory of plasticity over the last four decades. It will not only help stimulate further research in the field, but will enable its readers to confidently select the appropriate constitutive models for the materials or structural members relevant to their own applications.

Reviews

"The author has succeeded in putting his own clear, coherent stamp on a huge body of quite difficult material. Workers in the field will be grateful for that… Any research worker in the mechanics of solids, whether [experienced] or recently qualified, will find this book to be a valuable companion in the formulation of any basic investigation, as well as a unified record of much previous work."

-Michael J. Sewell, University of Reading
