Title: Elastoviscoplastic FEM
Author: Carsten Carstensen
Institution: Vienna University of Technology
Description: A short Matlab implementation of the P1 finite element method is provided for the numerical solution of viscoplastic and elastoplastic evolution problems in 2D and 3D for von-Mises yield functions and Prandtl-Reuss flow rules.

The material behaviour includes perfect plasticity as well as isotropic and kinematic hardening with or without a viscoplastic penalisation in a dual model, i.e. with displacements and the stresses as the main variables. The numerical realisation, however, eliminates the internal variables and becomes displacement-oriented in the end. Any adaption from the given three time-depending examples to more complex applications can easily be performed because of the shortness of the program and the given documentation, which is available here.

In the numerical 2D and 3D examples an efficient error estimator is realized to monitor the stress error.
