Providing a basic foundation for advanced graduate study and research in the mechanics of solids, this treatise develops systematically the fundamentals of finite inelastic deformations of heterogeneous materials. The book combines the mathematical precision of solid mechanics with the physics-based micro-structural knowledge of materials science, presenting a coherent picture of finite inelastic deformation of single and polycrystalline metals.


Preface; 1. Geometry; 2. Kinematics; 3. Stress and stress-rate measures and balance relations; 4. Continuum theories of elastoplasticity; 5. Integration of continuum constitutive equations; 6. Finite elastoplastic deformation of single crystals; 7. Finite plastic deformation of granular materials; 8. Average quantities and homogenisation models; 9. Special experimental techniques; Cited authors; Subject index.


"A very valuable, incredibly comprehensive account of finite inelastic deformation of heterogenous materials. Each chapter is extremely rich in detail and helpful background information. Thereby the exposition is physically and mathematically rigorous. It provides the reader with all he could possibly ask for to either embark from scratch into or intensify previous research in the field of plasticity."
Paul Steinmann, Mathematical Reviews
