A GENERALIZED THEORY OF STRAIN-RATE-DEPENDENT PLASTIC WAVE PROPAGATION IN BARS,
COLUMBIA UNIV NEW YORK
Pagination or Media Count:
A theory of plastic wave propagation in bars is formulated on the basis of a general quasi linear constitutive equation. It is shown that the strain-rate-independent and strain rate-dependent theories are special cases of the generalized theory, and conditions are shown under which one or the other may be valid. Author
