PHENOMENOLOGICAL HIGHER ORDER MODELING OF SIZE EFFECTS IN METAL PLASTICITY

Posted on by EmilioMtnez

Analytical development and numerical implementation of novel phenomenological higher order formulations to describe the mechanical behavior of metals at small scales. Modelization of the experimentally observed change in material response with diminishing size within the continuum level. Towards an efficient and robust numerical scheme for strain gradient plasticity theories.
