Methods of Gamma-convergence in rate-independent systems with applications to solid mechanics

  • Tomas Roubicek (Charles University Prague)
A3 01 (Sophus-Lie room)


Concept of energetic solutions to rate-independent systems governed by dissipation and stored-energy functionals will be introduced and scrutinized under Gamma-convergence of those functionals. Typical situations will be illustrated on specific applications in inelastic processes in solid mechanics, as hardening plasticity limitting to perfect plasticity, adhesive contact limitting to britlle delamination, and microstructure evolution with limit passage accros various scales.
