A Thermodynamically Consistent Eulerian Description of Finite Elastoplasticity
Recently it has been demonstrated that the classical Prandtl/Reuss theory based on the additive split of the deformation rate contrary to what is believed so far is possible to establish a consistent Eulerian rate formulation for finite elastoplasticity. Here, we attempt to place this Eulerian formulation on the thermodynamic grounds by extending it to a general case with thermal effects.
