Hyperplasticity is an approach to plasticity theory that is based on a thermodynamic approach, specifically developed to address constitutive modelling problems in geomechanics. The work has its origins in the work of Ziegler, and was initially developed by Houlsby when he was a PhD student in Cambridge. It has since been expressed in a more consistent and rigorous mathematical framework, with important contributions by Prof. Alexander Puzrin (ETH Zurich) and the late Prof. Ian Collins (Auckland).

Prof. Houlsby will introducing the main concepts of the theory and give some simple examples of its application. The seminar is aimed at researchers with an interest in developing constitutive models for geotechnical and other materials. It will particularly appeal to those with an interest in the more mathematical aspects of the subject.
