Title Decomposition method for elastoplastic equations
Author(s) V. N. Kukudzhanov (Moscow)
Abstract A new method for the integration of equations governing the behavior of elastoplastic media is proposed. This method is based on the decomposition of the constitutive relations for relaxation media with respect to physical processes. We show that for the classical elastoplastic medium independent of the time scale, the decomposition leads to an algebraic power-law equation for the correction coefficient of the elastic solution. In the case of perfect plasticity, this coefficient coincides with that obtained in [1]. For more general models, this coefficient can also be expressed in closed form.

For elastoviscoplastic media, the decomposition leads to a differential equation for the correction coefficients that in this case are functions of time. The solution of this differential equation is obtained in an analytical form. This allows one to investigate the convergence of the numerical method and to determine asymptotic properties of this method.

The proposed method has computational advantages as compared with the standard iteration methods. At each integration step, this method involves the solution of an elasticity problem and the solution of one equation for the correction coefficients at the corrector stage. In contrast to this, the traditional methods require solving a system of n constitutive equations (ngeq6) at each point of the body.
