This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Gradient-Enhanced Continuum Plasticity provides an expansive review of gradient-enhanced continuum plasticity from the initial stage to current research trends in experimental, theoretical, computational and numerical investigations. Starting with an overview of continuum mechanics and classical plasticity, the book then delves into concise lessons covering basic principles and applications, such as outlining the use of the finite element method to solve problems with size effects, mesh sensitivity and high velocity impact loading. All major theories are explored, providing readers with a guide to understanding the various concepts of and differences between an array of gradient-enhanced continuum plasticity models. Outlines the concepts of, and differences between, various gradient-enhanced continuum plasticity models Provides guidance on problem-solving for size effects, mesh-sensitivity tests and thermo-mechanical coupling Reviews experimental, numerical and theoretical issues in gradient-enhanced continuum plasticity Describes micromechanical aspects from experimental observations
