Keyword type: model definition, material

This option defines the elasto-plastic behavior of a material by means of the generalized Ramberg-Osgood law. The one-dimensional model takes the form:

$\displaystyle E\epsilon=\sigma + \alpha \left( \frac {\left\vert \sigma \right\vert }{\sigma_0} \right)^{n-1}\sigma$ (189)

where $ \epsilon$ is the logarithmic strain and $ \sigma$ the Cauchy stress. In the present implementation, the Eulerian strain is used, which is very similar to the logarithmic strain (about 1.3 % difference dat 20 % engineering strain). All coefficients may be temperature dependent.

defines a Ramberg-Osgood law. No temperature dependence is introduced.
