On the use of implicit constitutive relations to model the behaviour of elastic and inelastic deformations in continua: Applications to the mathematical modelling of rock

Principal Investigator: Roger Bustamante. Co-Investigator: Alejandro Ortiz-Bernardin. Project funded by Fondecyt-Conicyt Geomaterials such as rock and soil can show a plethora of nonlinear phenomena regarding their mechanical behaviour, such as: hysteresis (i.e., dependency of the mechanical properties in the load history), nonlinear relations between stresses and strains (even in the case of considering small strains),…
