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

2016 – 2020 Principal Investigator: Roger Bustamante. Co-Investigator: Alejandro Ortiz-Bernardin. Project funded by CONICYT-FONDECYT (Grant Nº 1160030) 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…
