Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, a constitutive model based on an internal variable-formulation of plasticity theory for the non-linear analysis of concrete is presented, which uses a new yield criterion which matches experimental data quite well and it accounts for both elastic and plastic stiffness degradations effects.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, an equilibrium relation is developed to govern the behavior of the couples, which constrained the couple stress tensor to be symmetric, and the symmetric curvature tensor became the only properly conjugated high order strain measures in the theory to have a real contribution to the total strain energy of the system.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, a Lagrangian finite element method of fracture and fragmentation in brittle materials is developed, where a cohesive-law fracture model is used to propagate multiple cracks along arbitrary paths.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, a self-consistent method for the elastic moduli of bodies containing randomly distributed flat cracks, with or without fluid in their interiors, is proposed and general concepts are outlined for arbitrary cracks and explicit derivations together with numerical results are given.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, an incremental approach to the solution of buckling and snapping problems is explored, where the authors use the length of the equilibrium path as a control parameter, together with the second order iteration method of Newton.
