Strain-Space Plasticity: Current Status
B. M. Dawari
Lecturer in Applied Mechanics
Stress-space plasticity conceptualized by Naghdi and co-researchers is an alternative formulation and considered to be superior in many ways to conventional stress-space plasticity. This article is intended to highlight the merits of strain-space formulation as well as current research status.
The yield surface in the stress-space can be expressed as ....(1)However, for any yield surface in stress-space there corresponds a unique yield surface in strain-space....(2)
