By Niels Saabye Ottosen

Constitutive modelling is the mathematical description of the way fabrics reply to quite a few loadings. this is often the main intensely researched box inside stable mechanics due to its complexity and the significance of exact constitutive types for functional engineering difficulties.

Topics coated include:
Elasticity - Plasticity conception - Creep idea - The nonlinear finite aspect approach - answer of nonlinear equilibrium equations - Integration of elastoplastic constitutive equations - The thermodynamic framework for constitutive modelling – Thermoplasticity - distinctiveness and discontinuous bifurcations

• extra complete in scope than aggressive titles, with precise dialogue of thermodynamics and numerical methods.
• deals applicable recommendations for numerical answer, illustrated by way of dialogue of particular models.
• Demonstrates each one subject in a whole and self-contained framework, with wide referencing.
