Abstract:

This period of the research program was devoted to solving problems of the inelastic response of composite elements under dynamic loading, examining wave propagation in rate dependent inelastic media, and studying the creep response of metals. The reference material representation was taken to be the constitutive equations of Bodner-Partom for elastic-viscoplastic work-hardening materials. In particular, a theory for the dynamic behavior of laminated slabs of elastic-viscoplastic materials has been developed. In addition, the constitutive equations were shown to provide realistic characterization of the time dependent inelastic behavior of metals ranging from creep to wave propagation conditions. Author
