,\hstrsct-Closed form and tinite-element solutions are examined for \rveral problem\ \bith strainsoftening materials. In the closed form solutions, strain-softening causes localization of the strain v.hich is accompanied bb an instantaneous vanishing of the stre(h. The tinite-element solutions agree closely with analytic \oIution\ in many C;LSC~ and exhibit… CONTINUE READING
