Abstract

We study nonlinear boundary value problems arising in the deformation theory of plasticity. These problems include 3D mixed problems related to nonlinear Lame system, elastoplastic bending of an incompressible hardening plate, and elastoplastic torsion of a bar. For all these different problems, we present a general variational approach based on monotone potential operator theory and prove solvability and monotonicity of potentials. The obtained results are illustrated on numerical examples.
