It has been argued elsewhere [1-5] that some of the features of anelastic deformation , change of phase, "necking", and yield are predicted by nonlinear elastic and thermoelastic theories. For the most part, the analyses have been confined to the simpler static nonlinear rod and bar theories, or to three-dimensional problems that can be treated by local analyses or that can be reduced to one dimension [6], since occasionally unfamiliar methods of nonlinear analysis are required. The results of… CONTINUE READING
