This work examines the geometrical and thermodynamical properties of mechanical behavior of metals and many polymeric and paste-like materials which are indispensable for developing a rational theory of viscoplasticity. The book is intended for researchers as well as Ph.D. students in the fields of material science and continuum mechanics. Anyone involved in the design of large scale industrial parts will also find this book highly useful. The concepts and results illustrated in this work are readily applicable to the rapidly developing field of biomechanics.
Includes a detailed description of the geometry of thermo-deformation with local evolving natural state configuration
A comparative review of various models of thermodynamics including classical, rational, statistical, and endochronic, with a special approach to inelastic high speed histories
Provides a comparative review of various models of thermodynamics (classical, rational, endochronic, statistical) with special approach to inelastic high speed histories
Introduces quasi-rate independence and its application to plastic waves, ratcheting, and diffuse localization
A tensor representation approach to thermo-inelastic coupled fields connected to a generalized associativity of flow rule; includes a comparison with the J2 approach
Discussion of Drucker, Iliushin, and Hill postulates; special attention devoted to the slight disorder of polycrystal grains
Quasi-rate independence and its application to plastic waves, ratcheting and diffuse localization;
Micromechanics based on the micro grain approach leading to a reduced number of material constants
Especially useful to the emergent field of biomechanics
Examines micromechanics based on micro grain approach leading to reduced number of material constants
Provides biaxial cruciform specimen Hopkinson bar results
Reexamines the Hill’s yield function for nonproportional stress-thermo-strain histories
This comprehensive monograph is the first to treat the thermomechanics of viscoplasticity. It is intended for researchers and students in the fields of material science and continuum mechanics and is especially useful to the emergent field of biomechanics.
