A Procedure for the Definition of a Thixotropic Inelastic Model
Different approaches can be followed to give a description of the thixotropic behaviour. Some advantages are derived from the phenomenological characterization suggested by Cheng, because steady and unsteady states of a material can be described by the resulting thixotropic inelastic model, with satisfactory approximation at any kinematic condition.
