Hardening (uhardening.f)

In subroutine ``uhardening.f'', the user can insert his own isotropic and/or kinematic hardening laws for (visco)plastic behavior governed by the keyword sequence *PLASTIC,HARDENING=USER. The header and variable description is as follows:

      subroutine uhardening(amat,iel,iint,t1l,epini,ep,dtime,fiso,dfiso,
     &                      fkin,dfkin)
!
!     INPUT:
!
!     amat:    material name (maximum 80 characters)
!     iel:     element number
!     iint:    integration point number
!     t1l:     temperature at the end of the increment
!     epini:   equivalent irreversible strain at the start 
!              of the increment
!     ep:      present equivalent irreversible strain
!     dtime:   time increment
!
!     OUTPUT:
!
!     fiso:    present isotropic hardening Von Mises stress
!     dfiso:   present isotropic hardening tangent (derivative
!              of the Von Mises stress with respect to the
!              equivalent irreversible strain)
!     fkin:    present kinematic hardening Von Mises stress
!     dfkin:   present kinematic hardening tangent (derivative
!              of the Von Mises stress with respect to the
!              equivalent irreversible strain)
!
