Has anyone followed the book Inelasticity of Materials by Arun Srinivasa?
I was interested in the way he used lumped parameter models to describe material behaviour in Chapter 3. Trying to follow his methodology I wanted to implement it for some experimental results I have.
However, I have faced an obstacle in trying to work out the hardening modulus of the the material in question. He has worked it out for his example case by curve fitting but I am just not getting the answer.
