Dunne and Petrinic (both engineering science, Oxford U.) bridge the gap between undergraduate texts in engineering plasticity and more advanced books in computational plasticity aimed at senior graduate students, researchers, and practicing engineers working in solid mechanics. The first part introduces microplasticity, considering continuum plasticity, the kinematics of large deformations and continuum mechanics, the finite element method, the implicit and explicit integration of plasticity constitutive equations, and other topics. The second part introduces a range of plasticity models including those for superplasticity, porous plasticity, creep, cyclic plasticity, and thermo-mechanical fatigue.
