Introduction to finite strain theory for continuum elasto-plasticity.


Introduction to finite strain theory for continuum elasto-plasticity.

Hashiguchi, Koichi and Yuki Yamakawa.

Computational mechanics


Hashiguchi (Kyushu U.) and Yamakawa (Tohoku U.) provide a comprehensive explanation of the finite elasto-plasticity theory that was formulated in 2005 but has not had a textbook devoted to it until now. They explain the mathematical and physical fundamentals required for continuum solid mechanics, and describe the general coordinate system before taking up finite strain theory. Their topics include physical quantities in convected coordinate systems, strain and strain rate tensors, convected derivative, hyperelasticity, and computational methods for finite strain elasto-plasticity.
