Elastoplastic Equilibrium of a Composition Containing an Elastic High-Modulus Inclusion

  • M. M. Kundrat


We pose and solve a two-dimensional model elastoplastic problem for a body containing a high-modulus elastic inclusion. Plasticity zones develop in the vicinity of the tips of the inclusion along its boundary. The problem is reduced to the solution of a singular integro-differential equation, which, in turn, is reduced to an infinite system of equations. The influence of the compliance of the inclusion on the sizes of the plasticity zones is analyzed.
