Linear Viscoelastic Stress Update

Calculates an admissible state (stress that lies on or within the yield surface, plastic strains, internal parameters, etc). This class is intended to be a parent class for classes with specific constitutive models.

Description

This computes the inelastic strain increment resulting from a linear viscoelastic material such as a GeneralizedKelvinVoigtModel or a GeneralizedMaxwellModel material. It uses an incremental strain approximation (either incremental small strains, or finite strains), and needs to be used in conjunction with ComputeMultipleInelasticStress or a similar stress calculator.

Example Input File Syntax


[./creep]
  type = LinearViscoelasticStressUpdate
[../]
(modules/tensor_mechanics/test/tests/visco/gen_maxwell_driving.i)

LinearViscoelasticStressUpdate must be run in conjunction with the inelastic strain return mapping stress calculator as shown below:


[./stress]
  type = ComputeMultipleInelasticStress
  inelastic_models = 'creep'
[../]
(modules/tensor_mechanics/test/tests/visco/gen_maxwell_driving.i)
