Séminaire du LPTMS: Jean-Louis Barrat

Elastoplastic models for amorphous plasticity

Jean-Louis Barrat (Université Joseph Fourier, Grenoble)

I will present our current understanding, based on microscopic simulations and experiments, of the elementary mechanisms that govern the deformation and flow of amorphous materials. I will show how these mechanisms can be incorporated into  simple lattice models governed by long range elastic interactions, discuss the mean field analysis of these models as well as fluctuation related issues such as the  statistics of avalanche like events.
