A thermo-elasto-plastic theory for special Cosserat rods

A general framework is presented to model coupled thermo-elasto-plastic deformations in the theory of special Cosserat rods. The use of the one-dimensional form of the energy balance in conjunction with the one-dimensional entropy balance allows us to obtain an additional equation for the evolution of a temperature-like one-dimensional field variable together with constitutive relations for this theory. Reduction to the case of thermoelasticity leads us to the well known nonlinear theory of thermoelasticity for special Cosserat rods.

A one-dimensional Rod Model for Carbon Nanotubes

We recently published a paper in International Journal of Solids and Structures titled "A rod model for three dimensional deformations of single walled carbon nanotubes".(paper attached)
