Plastic Strain

Plasticity model in Abaqus to capture the continues plastic strain of granular material under triaxial cyclic loading?

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

I am working on modelling ballast aggregates under triaxial loading. Confining pressure applied in the intermediate and minor principal direction and cyclic compression load applied in the major principal axis direction. I wanted to capture the continues plastic strain (PS) with cycles (N). My test results show that the PS increase with N up to about 10,000 cycles and the rate of strain slowly diminish for later cycles and almost stay constant after N=100,000. What available model in Abaqus can be used to get this behaviour. I have to run my analysis at least for 10,000 cycles.

What are the criteria for the decomposition of the total strain into elastic and plastic parts?

We know that total strain is the symmetric part of the displacement gradient. Total strain can be represented by the sum of the elastic and plastic (eigen) strains. Let consider a dislocation in an arbitrary solid. Suppose we computed the displacement filed, therefore the total strain can be obtained immediately. What are the criteria for the decomposition of the total strain into elastic and plastic parts?
