Gradient-Enhanced Continuum Plasticity provides an expansive review of gradient-enhanced continuum plasticity from the initial stage to current research trends in experimental, theoretical, computational and numerical investigations. Starting with an overview of continuum mechanics and classical plasticity, the book then delves into concise lessons covering basic principles and applications, such as outlining the use of the finite element method to solve problems with size effects, mesh sensitivity and high velocity impact loading. All major theories are explored, providing readers with a guide to understanding the various concepts of and differences between an array of gradient-enhanced continuum plasticity models.

Boyd Professor at the Louisiana State University, in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. He was the recipient of the 2008 Nathan M. Newark Medal of the American Society of Civil Engineers. He is currently a Distinguished Member of the American Society of Civil Engineers, Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, the American Academy of Mechanic, Society of Engineering Science and Associate Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics. He is currently the Chair of the Executive Board of the Materials Division of ASME, and also on the editorial board of numerous engineering journals. Dr. Voyiadjis is an expert in multiscale modelling of size effects in materials with different methods of atomistic simulation and continuum enhanced models including gradient plasticity and gradient damage. He has also conducted research in damage mechanics, numerical simulation of material behaviour, inelastic behaviour, thermal effects, and much more. He has over 280 refereed journal articles and 18 books (11 as editor) to his credit, and over 50 graduate students (31 Ph.Ds.) have completed their degrees under his direction.
Dr. Yooseob Song is an assistant professor in the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley. His primary research interest is in computational solid mechanics, multiscale modeling, grain boundary modeling, dynamic strain aging in metals and metal alloys, nonlocal continuum and crystal plasticity, temperature and rate dependent constitutive modeling, etc. Research activities of particular interest include macro-mechanical and micro-mechanical constitutive modeling, modeling at different length scales including finite element method for strain gradient continuum plasticity and strain gradient crystal plasticity.
