  • Format: Distance Learning

Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to explicate the fundamentals in theory of plasticity in metals and the methods used in modeling of elastic-plastic structures; moreover, they are able to mathematically formulate the basic elastoplastic problems in case of small deformations and solve them by using analytical and/or numerical methods in different engineering applications.

Subject of course

Tensor notation and fundamentals of linear elasticity theory; criteria for yielding in metals; classical theory of plasticity; plastic stress-strain relations; plastic work; flow rules and work hardening; hardening models; incremental and deformation theories; application to plane elastoplastic problems (analytical and computational methods).

Teaching methods

Oral presentation; calaculation of examples; presentation of specialised software

Mode of examination
