Elastoplastic nonlinear FEM analysis of FGM shells of Cosserat type


The paper is a continuation of [1] where the formulation of the elastic constitutive law for functionally graded materials (FGM) on the grounds of nonlinear 6-parameter shell theory with the 6th parameter (the drilling degree of freedom) was presented. Here the formulation is extended to the elasto-plastic range. The material law is based on Cosserat plasticity and employs the well-known Tamura-Tomota-Ozawa (TTO) [2] mixture model with additional formulae for Cosserat material parameters. Formulation is verified by solving a set of demanding analyses of plates, curved and multi-branched shells, including geometry, thickness and material distribution variation parameter analyses.
