Abstract: We consider a variational formulation of gradient elasto-plasticity, as they arise in the incremental formulation of the plastic evolution problem, subject to a class of single-slip side conditions. Such side conditions typically render the associated boundary-value problems non-convex. We first show that, for a large class of plastic deformations, a given single-slip condition (specification of Burgers' vectors and slip planes) can be relaxed by introducing a lamination microstructure. This yields a relaxed side condition which allows for arbitrary slip in a prescribed family of slip planes. This relaxed model can be thought of as an aid to simulating macroscopic plastic behavior without the need to resolve arbitrarily fine spatial scales. We also discuss issues of existence of solutions for the relaxed model.
