    The Lu-Pister Multiplicative Decomposition Applied to Thermoelastic Geometrically-Exact Rods

    Alexander Humer and Hans Irschik*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.129, No.3, pp. 1395-1417, 2021, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2021.017944

    Abstract This paper addresses the application of the continuum mechanics-based multiplicative decomposition for thermohyperelastic materials by Lu and Pister to Reissner’s structural mechanics-based, geometrically exact theory for finite strain plane deformations of beams, which represents a geometrically consistent non-linear extension of the linear shear-deformable Timoshenko beam theory. First, the Lu-Pister multiplicative decomposition of the displacement gradient tensor is reviewed in a three-dimensional setting, and the importance of its main consequence is emphasized, i.e., the fact that isothermal experiments conducted over a range of constant reference temperatures are sufficient to identify constitutive material parameters in the stress-strain relations. We address various isothermal… More >

    Computational Modelling of Isotropic Multiplicative Growth

    G. Himpel, E. Kuhl, A. Menzel, P. Steinmann1

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.8, No.2, pp. 119-134, 2005, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2005.008.119

    Abstract The changing mass of biomaterials can either be modelled at the constitutive level or at the kinematic level. This contribution attends on the description of growth at the kinematic level. The deformation gradient will be multiplicatively split into a growth part and an elastic part. Hence, in addition to the material and the spatial configuration, we consider an intermediate configuration or grown configuration without any elastic deformations. With such an ansatz at hand, contrary to the modelling of mass changes at the constitutive level, both a change in density and a change in volume can be modelled. The algorithmic realisation… More >
