Finite Elastoplastic Deformations: Basic Concepts and Applications

Guillermo J. Creus


The paper is concerned with the representation of
isothermal mechanical behavior of an elastoplastic solid
that possesses a finite elastic range and exhibits anisotropy in its plastic behavior. The state and orientation of a stress free element is described by means of irreducible rank tensors. A discussion of some difficulties usual in finite strain analysis and applications using finite elements are included.
