Abstract:

Implicit in the development of any plasticity model are assumptions associated with the behavior of the actual material. Assumptions generally employed are listed with a discussion of their implications. Several models that incorporate these assumptions or attempt to overcome their restrictions are presented. Several alternative algorithms have evolved and are currently being used in finite element programs for plastic analysis. Each of these has computational advantages and liabilities so that the analyst is presented with choices among acceptable procedures. These procedures are reviewed in order to facilitate a rational selection among competing procedures that best suit the needs of a particular problem class. The contents of this memorandum will appear as a chapter in the ASME Pressure Vessel and Piping Division Vol. I - Decade of Progress in Design and Analysis 1980. Author
