Extended Chaboche viscoplastic model for cyclic loading
These days I've been applying oneself to implement the Chaboche viscoplastic model in ABAQUS user-subroutine for simulating the cyclic loading in single crystals.
The procedure can easily get out. I'm not sure about the problem, the deduction of Jacobian, the convergence?
Btw, I know there is free subroutine for crystal plasticity by Huang YG. I wonder if the UMAT routine for chaboche model is available, then I can generalize it to fit for my case.
If pity there isn't, guide or example for viscoplastic model can be of great help also.
Thanks a lot
