Towards a catastrophe theory for the mechanics of plasticity and fracture. (English) Zbl 0565.73039
The catastrophe theory has established that the conservative systems have only a few ways to lose their stability. We sketch a similar classification for a class of dissipative systems. Although our scope is limited to the case of two dissipative variables, we find six elementary catastrophes. We present examples from discrete plasticity, crack and friction mechanics.
