Multi-mechanism Modeling of the Inelastic Material Behaviour
Hardback 250 pp.
This book aims to present a class of so-called multimechanism models that are able to account for complex monotonic and cyclic mechanical behaviors and for deformation mechanisms with a reasonable number of material parameters and internal variables. This is a phenomenological approach, which is intermediate between the unified model type and the micro-mechanical models. The mechanisms
can be associated with different phases or follow various regimes in the material behavior. They can take into account various deformation
modes and provide a good description of plasticity, damage, creep
behavior, creep plasticity interaction and cyclic responses under proportional and non-proportional loading paths for isotropic as well as
