Conference paper


Inelastic behaviours of polycrystalline metals are irreversible and path dependent. Such behaviours may be controlled by some micro-structures and their changes. We suppose that a combination of a few simple and fundamental semi-micro mechanisms may produce a big variety of inelastic behaviours observed in lots of experiments. In such a view point, a systematic formulation of realistic constitutive equations by an aide of computer is presented here.
