Introduction to finite strain theory for continuum elasto-plasticity.
They explain the mathematical and physical fundamentals required for continuum solid mechanics, and describe the general coordinate system before taking up finite strain theory. Their topics include physical quantities in convected coordinate systems, strain and strain rate tensors, convected derivative, hyperelasticity, and computational methods for finite strain elasto-plasticity.
