Hypoelastic behavior

The hypoelastic material model:

  • is valid for small elastic strains—the stresses should not be large compared to the elastic modulus of the material;

  • is used when the load path is monotonic; and

  • must be defined by user subroutine UHYPEL if temperature dependence is to be included.
