Counterintuitive Dynamic Behavior in Elastic-Plastic Structures
The counterintuitive phenomena of elastic, perfectly plastic beam, circular plate and square plate are investigated numerically and experimentally. A new unstable slot and asymmetry of dynamic response of beam are revealed. The unsteady areas and uncertainty of response are observed numerically. At the end, the law of thermodynamics and the theorem of Lyapunov instability are employed to state the formation mechanism of counterintuitive behavior.
