About these proceedings


This book collects recent theoretical developments in the area of material instability in elastic and plastic solids along with related analytical and numerical methods and applications. The existing different approaches to instability phenomena in metal single crystals, polycristals and in geomaterials are presented with the emphasis laid on mutual relations and on unifying concepts, including elliptictly loss and the energy criterion. Quasi-static bifurcation, initiation of single or multiple shear bands and post-critical strain localization are examined along with dynamic phenomena as wave propagation, moving shocks, internal snap-through and instability of flutter type. This gives an overview of a variety of material instability problems, methods and applications.
