Worst scenario approach for elastoplasticity with hardening and uncertain input data. (English) Zbl 1099.74505
Summary: Coefficients of the stress-strain relations, yield function, and the hardening parameters in a model of isotropic hardening are considered to be uncertain. Using simplest finite elements in \(\mathbb R^3\) and backward differenences in time, an approximate solution is defined and its continuous dependence on the uncertain input data investigated. Three different criteria are chosen to find the worst input data in a given set of admissible data. Some existence and convergence results are proven.
