Mathematical Foundations of Limit Criterion for Anisotropic Materials

Open access


In the paper a new proposition of limit state criteria for anisotropic solids exhibiting different strengths at tension and compression is presented. The proposition is based on the concept of energetically orthogonal decompositions of stress state introduced by Rychlewski. The concept of stress state dependent parameters describing the influence of certain stress modes on the total measure of material effort was firstly presented by Burzynski. The both concepts are reviewed in the paper. General formulation of a new limit criterion as well as its specification for certain elastic symmetries is given. It is compared with some of the other known limit criteria for anisotropic solids. General methodology of acquiring necessary data for the criterion specification is presented. The ideas of energetic and limit state orthogonality are discussed - their application in representation of the quadratic forms of energy and limit state criterion as a sum of square terms is shown
