Geometrically exact elastoplastic rods -determination of yield surface in terms of stress resultants

Ajeet Kumar's picture

This work addresses the determination of yield surfaces for geometrically exact elastoplastic rods. Use is made of a formulation where the rod is subjected to an uniform strain field along its arc length, thereby reducing the elastoplastic problem of the full rod to just its cross-section. By integrating the plastic work and the stresses over the rod's cross-section, one then obtains discrete points of the yield surface in terms of stress resultants. Eventually, Lamé curves in their most general form are fitted to the discrete points by an appropriate optimisation method. The resulting continuous yield surfaces are examined for their scalability with respect to cross-section dimensions and also compared with existing analytical forms of yield surfaces.

The article will soon appear in Computational Mechanics which can also be accessed at the following link: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/346484659_Geometrically_exact_e...
