Revised Edition (PDF)

Copyright 1990, 2006 by Jacob LublinerThis book was previously published by Pearson Education, Inc.
When I first began to plan this book, I thought that I would begin the prefacewith the words “The purpose of this little book is...” While I never lost mybelief that small is beautiful, I discovered that it is impossible to put togethera treatment of a field as vast as plasticity theory between the covers of atruly “little” book and still hope that it will be reasonably comprehensive.I have long felt that a modern book on the subject — one that would beuseful as a primary reference and, more importantly, as a textbook in a grad-uate course (such as the one that my colleague Jim Kelly and I have beenteaching) — should incorporate modern treatments of constitutive theory(including thermodynamics and internal variables), large-deformation plas-ticity, and dynamic plasticity. By no coincidence, it is precisely these topics— rather than the traditional study of elastic-plastic boundary-value prob-lems, slip-line theory and limit analysis — that have been the subject of my own research in plasticity theory. I also feel that a basic treatment of plasticity theory should contain at least introductions to the physical foun-dations of plasticity (and not only that of metals) and to numerical methods— subjects in which I am not an expert.I found it quite frustrating that no book in print came even close toadequately covering all these topics. Out of necessity, I began to prepareclass notes to supplement readings from various available sources. Withthe aid of contemporary word-processing technology, the class notes cameto resemble book chapters, prompting some students and colleagues to ask,“Why don’t you write a book?” It was these queries that gave me theidea of composing a “little” book that would discuss both the topics thatare omitted from most extant books and, for the sake of completeness, theconventional topics as well.Almost two years have passed, and some 1.2 megabytes of disk space havebeen filled, resulting in over 400 pages of print. Naively perhaps, I still hopethat the reader approaches this overgrown volume as though it were a littlebook: it must not be expected, despite my efforts to make it comprehensive,to be exhaustive, especially in the sections dealing with applications; I havepreferred to discuss just enough problems to highlight various facets of anytopic. Some oft-treated topics, such as rotating disks, are not touched atiii
