Abstract:

This report presents theories and numerical analysis for a number of nonlinear problems in solids and fluids carried out during the final year of the THEMIS project. Stability and convergence of nonlinear finite element equations are discussed. This paper considers that for small time domain the plastic and viscous behavior can be separated. Laboratory materials data can be used in conventional viscoelastic and viscoplastic analysis. Applications to the finite strain plasticity, thermoviscoplastic fiber composites, endochronic theory, and dynamic stability have been demonstrated. Author, modified-PL.
