solve engineering materials problems. Particular attention is given to inverse analysis, parameter identification, and the numerical implementation of models with finite element method codes. Application in practice is discussed in detail, showing examples of working computer programs for simpler constitutive behaviors. Examples explore all the important components of material modeling which form the building blocks of any complex constitutive behavior.
