Min-Max Approach to Shakedown and Limit Load Analysis for Elastic Perfectly Plastic and Kinematic Hardening Materials

  • Janisław Zwoliński
Part of the Solid Mechanics and Its Applications book series (SMIA, volume 36)


The paper deals with the shakedown and limit load analysis of perfectly plastic and kinematic hardening materials. The numerical approach is based on the finite element method (FEM).
