Title Continuity Violation Trajectories in Perfectly Plastic Bodies
Author(s) Yu.N. Radaev (Ishlinsky Institute for Problems in Mechanics, Russian Academy of Sciences, pr-t Vernadskogo 101, str.1, Moscow, 119526 Russia,
Abstract The consistency equations for the increments of small strains in a triorthogonal isostatic coordinate system supplemented with additional relations between the physical components of the inconsistency tensor are considered. There are six significant consistency equations. It is proved that, for the stress states corresponding to the edge of the Coulomb-Tresca prism, there are only three independent consistency equations. Systems of independent consistency equations written in the isostatic coordinate mesh are explicitly indicated and studied. Sufficient conditions for the remaining three consistency equations to be satisfied if the three independent consistency equations are satisfied are obtained. It is shown that the continuity violations on the surface of a perfectly plastic body propagate into the depth of the body along asymptotic lines on the layers of a vector field indicating the directions of the maximum principal normal stress. Since the asymptotic lines are less curved than any other lines on the surface (in the sense that the normal curvature of the asymptotic lines is zero), the continuity violations propagate into a perfectly plastic body along the least curved trajectories, which permits one to speak of the minimum curving of crack propagation trajectories in perfectly plastic rigid bodies.
