A gradient flow theory of plasticity for granular materials
Department of Mathematical Sciences
A flow theory of plasticity for pressure-sensitive, dilatant materials incorporating second order gradients into the flow-rule and yield condition is suggested. The appropriate extra boundary conditions are obtained with the aid of the principle of virtual work. The implications of the theory into shear-band analysis are examined. The determination of the shear-band thickness and the persistence of ellipticity in the governing equations are discussed.
