This thesis is primarily a mathematical treatise on
plasticity in which the author has endeavoured to give a complete
and systematic presentation of the subject.
It begins with a general description of the observed
mechanical behaviour of materials and from this emerges the concept
of an 'ideal plastic material' which provides the physical model for the
classical mathematical theory of plasticity...
The final chapter of this thesis does not follow the
'plasticity' theme of the first four chapters. It is, however,
included as an illustration of the numerical solution of the
biharmonic equation. The finite difference method is used to
solve the eccentric annulus problem for various combinations of boundary
and loading conditions and some representative solutions
are presented. (These solutions were obtained using the Elliott 503 digital computer at the University of Tasmania. and an ALGOL print-up of the author's computer program is included in Appendix 4).
