Generalized Plasticity deals with the plasticity of materials and structures. It is an expansion of the "Unified Strength Theory to Plasticity Theory", leading to a unified treatment of metal plasticity and plasticity of geomaterials, generally. It includes the metal plasticity for Tresca materials, Huber-von-Mises materials and twin-shear materials and the geomaterial plasticity for Mohr-Coulomb materials, generalized twin-shear materials and the Unified Strength Theory. The book is divided into five major parts: 1. Yield function and choice; 2. Constitutive relation; 3. Slip-line Field Theory for plane strain problems, Characteristics Field Theory for plane stress problems and Characteristics Field Theory for spatial axisymmetrical problems; 4. Plastic zone analysis at crack tip and fracture criterion for mixed mode crack; 5. Limit loads and shakedown loads for pressure vessel. Examples of applications and problems are given for most chapters.
