Variants of the local strains theory

  • A. F. Kregers


By means of the proposed new variants of the local strains theory it is possible to solve a broad class of complex loading problems for initially isotropic materials. The basic equations for a series of variants of incompressible and compressible materials are derived. The author investigates the possibility of using the relations obtained to solve complex loading problems for materials with irreversible plastic strains or with different physical reversible or irreversible creep relations depending on the loading path.
