Nonlinear Continuum Mechanics for Finite Elasticity-Plasticity: Multiplicative Decomposition with Subloading Surface Model empowers readers to fully understand the constitutive equation of finite strain, an essential piece in assessing the strength of materials and safety of structures. The book starts with a foundational overview of continuum mechanics and plasticity, but then segues into more complex topics, including multiplicative decomposition, the isoclinic concept, subloading surface modeling techniques and other approaches. The development of hyperelastic and elastoplastic constitutive equations are outlined, as are both deformation rate and stress tensors. The book concludes with examples of these concepts and modeling techniques being deployed in real-world scenarios.

Key Features

  • Covers both the fundamentals of continuum mechanics and plasticity while also introducing readers to more advanced topics such as the subloading surface model, multiplicative decomposition, and the isoclinic concept, among others
  • Provides a thorough introduction to complex tensorial formulation details for multiplicative decomposition of the deformation gradient
  • Covers precise elastoplastic constitutive equations based on subloading surface and subloading friction models
