STRUCTURAL INELASTICITY XVII, THEORY OF PLASTIC STRUCTURES

A sampling is given of the applications of plasticity theory to structures. Relations between various theories which include or neglect strain hardening and elastic strains are discussed. Applications are given to trusses, beams, frames, and circular plates. The paper concludes with some general observations on the use of plasticity theories with finite-element models.
