  • Wilko C. EmmensEmail author
Part of the SpringerBriefs in Applied Sciences and Technology book series (BRIEFSAPPLSCIENCES)


This Appendix presents only a very brief introduction to plasticity. The reader is referred to text books for a more detailed treatment. Note that most expressions presented here are only valid for isotropic materials, materials of which the properties are the same in every direction. Anisotropy is discussed in Sect. 18.3
