Isogeometric analysis of linear isotropic and kinematic hardening elastoplasticity
Keywords:Isogeometric analysis, NURBS, Rate-independent plasticity, von Mises yield criterion, isotropic hardening, kinematic hardening
AbstractMaterial nonlinearity is of great importance in many engineering problems. In this paper, we exploit NURBS-based isogeometric approach in solving materially nonlinear problems, i.e. elastoplastic problems. The von Mises model with linear isotropic hardening and kinematic hardening is presented, and furthermore the method can also be applied to other elastoplastic models without any loss of generality. The NURBS basis functions allow us to describe exactly the curved geometry of underlying problems and control efficiently the accuracy of approximation solution. Once the discretized system of non-linear equilibrium equation is obtained, the Newton-Raphson iterative scheme is used. Several numerical examples are tested. The accuracy and reliability of the proposed method are verified by comparing with results from ANSYS Workbench software.
