Plasticity is now an established area of study within materials science and engineering mechanics. The proceedings of the Second International Symposium on Plasticity and its Current Applications brings together papers on all current areas of research into the plastic behaviour of solids. The main emphasis is on dynamic plasticity and study of deformation at crystal level but there are also papers on plasticity in particular materials such as superalloys and metal-matrix composites, the mechanics of damage, and the applications of plastic theory in metal-forming processes.
