Numerical integration of elasto-viscoplastic-damage constitutive equations under plane stress condition
European Journal of Computational Mechanics
This paper deals with the numerical treatment of "advanced" elasto-viscoplasticdamage constitutive equations in the particular case of plane stress. The viscoplastic constitutive equations account for the mixed isotropic and kinematic non linear hardening and are fully coupled with the isotropic ductile damage. The viscous effect is indifferently described by a power function (Norton type) or an hyperbolic sine function. Different time integration schemes are used and compared to each other assuming plane stress condition, widely used when dealing with shell structures as well as to the 3D reference case.
