This book unifies, for the first time in book form, the main concepts of the physical and mathematical theory of plasticity. It presents the foundations of modern anisotropic plasticity, which link microscopic observations of texture formation with macroscopic properties of plastically anisotropic materials. Progress in metal-forming technologies has created the necessity to express the plastic yield process in terms of mathematics in order to apply computer methods. In addition new materials used in structural elements require a more detailed description of their physical structure. Amongst both metallurgists and mechanical designers, a strong tendency exists to formulate the scientific material in a common language. This book meets this request, although it has no ambitions to summarise the existing state of knowledge, only to combine the mathematical and physical approaches. The book is mainly addressed to mechanical designers. It is written for researchers who have a knowledge of physics and who want a mathematical tool for using this knowledge for a better description of technological processes. Moreover, it will interest metallurgists who want to have a more general view of their field of research, as well as for mechanical and civil engineers who want to apply some microstructural knowledge in their work. It could also be useful for graduate students at post-doctorate level who want to enter the field of plastic deformation of polycrystalline metals with texture.
