Title:Second-deformation-gradient theory of plasticity
Author(s):Acharya, Amit; Shawki, Tarek G.
Second Deformation Gradient
Abstract:Second deformat ion gradient dependent constitutive postulates for plastic materials are introduced. The Clausius-Duhem Inequality and the Principle of Material Frame Indifference are used to deduce restrictions on the constitutive asssumptions. These general considerations are utilized to lay down the constitutive assumption of a special class of plastic solids, namely elasto-plastic solids. Interesting features of this special case, such as a material length scale in the constitutive description of elasto-plastic solids and a possible explanation of the Taylor-Quinney effect in rate independent thermoplasticity, are illustrated. It is expected that the introduction of a higher gradient of deformation, as opposed to those of internal variables, will ease the experimental determination of specific constitutive statements.
