Winter 1998 Seminar Series
Structured Deformations in Continuum Mechanics
After a brief review of the theory of structured deformations, some
examples, mainly one-dimensional, are discussed. They show how the theory can
describe qualitatively, and in a unified way, such phenomena as fracture,
yielding, and damage. These different types of material behavior are obtained by
slight changes in the structure of the interfacial energy at the microscopic
