Abstract: The connection between non-simple materials and plasticity is explored. The thermodynamic relations of conventional rate-independent plasticity and various classes of second-deformation-gradient plasticity are derived within the context of a theory with internal variables using the "Coleman-Noll" procedure. Models of conventional and gradient-dependent, rate-independent thermo-plasticity are developed based on the foregoing thermodynamic relations. In contrast with generalized elasticity, it is shown that plasticity with internal variables is capable of exhibiting noll-simple constitutive response in the absence of higher-order stresses.This thesis also examines localization in dynamic shearing motions of a class of incompressible, gradient-dependent plastic solids. A linear stability analysis coupled with a numerical study of the nonlinear problem indicates interesting new features, in the class of motions considered, due to the gradient modification.
