The purpose of this book is to present and demonstrate the use of finite
element based methods for the solution of problems involving plasticity. As well as the conventional quasi-static incremental theory of plasticity, attention is given to the slow transient phenomenon of elasto-viscoplastic behaviour and also to dynamic transient problems. We make no pretence that the text provides a complete treatment of any of these topics but rather we see it as - an attempt to present numerical solution techniques, which have been well tried and tested, for selected important areas of application.
