Computational aspects of the nonisothermal classical plasticity Academic Article uri icon


  • The author has previously proposed an extension of classical plasticity theory which accounts for thermal effects and creep behavior and is applicable to transient temperature loading. This theory has been designed for use within large scale nonlinear finite element computer codes. Although the constitutive theory has been previously presented, the complete derivation was not reported due to its length. In this paper the author will present an abbreviated derivation of the uniaxial theory for those who have found the theory difficult to follow. In addition, some computational examples of the theory are presented in order to better clarify the capability of the model as well as details of its utilization. 1982.
