Professor Reddy is known worldwide for his significant contributions to
the field of applied mechanics through the authorship of widely used
textbooks on the linear and nonlinear finite element analysis,
variational methods, composite materials and structures, and continuum
mechanics. His pioneering works on the development of shear deformation
theories (that bear his name in the literature as the Reddy third-order
plate theory and the Reddy layerwise theory) have had a major impact and
have led to new research developments and applications.

Structural continuum theories require a proper treatment of the
kinematic, kinetic, and constitutive issues accounting for possible
sources of non-local and non-classical continuum mechanics concepts and
solving associated boundary value problems. There is a wide range of
theories, from higher gradient to truly nonlocal (e.g., strain gradient
theories, couple stress theories, Eringens stress gradient theories). In
this lecture, an overview of the authors recent research on nonlocal
elasticity and couple stress theories in developing the governing
equations of beams and plates will be presented. Two different nonlinear
gradient elasticity theories that account for geometric nonlinearity and
microstructure-dependent size effects are discussed. The first theory is
based on modified couple stress theory of Mindlin [1] and the second
one is based on Srinivasa and Reddy gradient elasticity theory [2].
These two theories are used to derive the governing equations of beams
and plates [3, 4]. In addition, a graph-based finite element framework
(GraFEA) suitable for the study of damage in brittle materials will be
discussed [5].


Dr. Reddy, the Oscar S Wyatt Endowed Chair Professor, Distinguished
Professor, and Regents Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Texas A&M
University, is a highly-cited researcher, author of 21 textbooks and
over 600 journal papers, and a leader in the applied mechanics field for
more than 40 years. Dr. Reddy has been a member of Texas A&M faculty
since 1992.
