2) Select yield criterion depending on the material, formulate the elastoplastic stiffness matrix and the algorithm of the elastoplastic loading.
3) Formulate and solve limit analysis problems for the calculation of failire loads of structures.
4) Describe, fromulate and solve problems of determining the elastoplastic response of a variety of structures (surface and spatial) to static loads, using the finite element method.
5) Αnalyze and solv problems of elastoplastic static analysis of spatial framed structures with the use of specialized software.
