Forward vs backward Euler for return algorithms

In Part 5 of my series on return mapping for plane stress plasticity, I claim that the obsession with backward Euler is not justified if accuracy is important.  See http://www.parresianz.com/mechanics/plasticity/algorithm/plane-stress-drucker-prager-return-part-5/.

Let me know if you disagree and why.

How to use non-dimensional form in open source codes instead of Units

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

I am using an open source FEM platform, which requires you to convert your equation system to non-dimensional form. So, there are no units specified for the parameters in the problem. If you use compatible input units, you should expect the output in matching unit - just like one would do in a normal python or C++ code for solving physical problems. I have an elasto-plastic dynamic problem to solve, and these are the parameters for the Drucker-Prager Soil Model for soft clay.

E = 5000000;                 // Young's Modulus in N/m^2 or Pa
