A note about hardening-free viscoelastic models in Maxwellian-type rheologies at large strains
Maxwellian-type rheological models of inelastic effects of creep type at large strains are revisited in relation to inelastic strain gradient theories. In particular, we observe that a dependence of
Equilibria of Charged Hyperelastic Solids
We investigate equilibria of charged deformable materials via the minimization of an electroelastic energy. This features the coupling of elastic response and electrostatics by means of a capacitary


Quasistatic Evolution Problems for Linearly Elastic–Perfectly Plastic Materials
The problem of quasistatic evolution in small strain associative elastoplasticity is studied in the framework of the variational theory for rate-independent processes. Existence of solutions is
Differential, Energetic, and Metric Formulations for Rate-Independent Processes
In these notes we want to give an overview of the recently developed theory for rate-independent systems. Such systems are used to model hysteresis, dry friction, elastoplasticity, magnetism, and
Damage of nonlinearly elastic materials at small strain - Existence and regularity results -
This paper discusses an existence result for energetic solutions of rate‐independent damage processes and the temporal regularity of the solution. We consider a body consisting of a physically
Global injectivity in second-gradient nonlinear elasticity and its approximation with penalty terms
We present a new penalty term approximating the Ciarlet–Nečas condition (global invertibility of deformations) as a soft constraint for hyperelastic materials. For non-simple materials including a
On rate-independent hysteresis models
This paper deals with a general approach to the modeling of rate–independent processes which may display hysteretic behavior. Such processes play an important role in many applications like
Damage of an elastic body undergoing large deformations by a "hard-device" loading possibly combined with an impact (modeled by a unilateral frictionless contact) of another, ideally rigid body is
On the Passage from Nonlinear to Linearized Viscoelasticity
We formulate a quasistatic nonlinear model for nonsimple viscoelastic materials at a finite-strain setting in the Kelvin's-Voigt's rheology where the viscosity stress tensor complies with the
Two-well rigidity and multidimensional sharp-interface limits for solid–solid phase transitions
We establish a quantitative rigidity estimate for two-well frame-indifferent nonlinear energies, in the case in which the two wells have exactly one rank-one connection. Building upon this novel
Existence results for a class of rate-independent material models with nonconvex elastic energies
Abstract 1. Introduction In mechanics, rate-independent evolutionary problems have always played an important role, e.g., in Coulomb friction or in perfect plasticity. The intrinsic nonsmoothness
Two-well linearization for solid-solid phase transitions
In this paper we consider nonlinearly elastic, frame-indifferent, and singularly perturbed two-well models for materials undergoing solid-solid phase transitions in any space dimensions, and we
