Reliable solution of a perfect plastic problem with uncertain stress-strain law and yield function. (English) Zbl 1014.74015
Coefficients of both stress-strain relations and yield function in the Prandtl-Reuss model are considered to be uncertain. Using simple finite elements in $$\mathbb{R}^3$$ and backward differences in time, the author obtains an approximate solution and investigates its continuous dependence on uncertain data. Three different criteria are chosen to find the worst possible data in a given set of admissible input data. Finally, some convergence results are proven.
