Module synopsis to be printed in the catalogue
This module is concerned with basic concepts and methods of computational plasticity. Essential steps required in
numerical integration of elasto-plastic constitutive models are first discussed in a one-dimensional setting. Concepts
of plasticity under multiaxial stress states are introduced and several yield criteria are described including von
Mises, Tresca, Mohr-Coulomb and Drucker-Prager yield criteria. Details of numerical integration are provided for the
von Mises yield criterion. Understanding of basic concepts and practical applications are strengthened through the
programming exercises focusing on one-dimensional problems, and use of computational codes under multiaxial
state of stress. Computer simulations of structural and geotechnical problems are performed, with the objective of
understanding the concepts of engineering failure and limit state.
