When and where the stress objective rates are used in ABAQUS software?

Hi everyone,

    I have a question about the objectivity tensor in ABAQUS software. Below is my question.   

Deformation gradient in VUMAT of ABAQUS

Dear All,

     In ABAQUS manual, it is said for hyperelastic material, it is better to define it by stretch tensor U. But if I need to use deformation gradient F in the material model directly, I need to rotate the stress back to corotational frame. How should I do that?  Should I make a polar decomposition of F=R*U first, and then apply Rt*S*R? or I can use the relative spin increment already provided to do that? If so, how?

Sharing ABAQUS UMAT and VUMAT subroutines

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

I have noticed that a lot of people are using UMAT and VUMAT material model
subroutines for their researches. However, most of these subroutines do not
find their way to free code market and remain in the hands of the developers.
Therefore, a lot of wheel re-inventing has to be done by other people. Since
development and testing of a material subroutine takes a damn long time, I
think it is a good idea if each of us can share the subroutines she has
developed with the others. I know that a couple of subroutines are publicly
