An Eulerian rate formulation of finite strain elastoplasticity is developed based on a fully integrable rate form of hyperelasticity proposed in Part I of this work. A flow rule is proposed in the Eulerian framework, based on the principle of maximum plastic dissipation in six-dimensional stress space for the case of J2 isotropic plasticity. The proposed flow rule bypasses the need for additional evolution laws and/or simplifying assumptions for the skew-symmetric part of the plastic velocity gradient, known as the material plastic spin. Kinematic hardening is modeled with an evolution equation for the backstress tensor considering Prager’s yielding-stationarity criterion. Nonlinear evolution equations for the backstress and flow stress are proposed for an extension of the model to mixed nonlinear hardening. Furthermore, exact deviatoric/volumetric decoupled forms for kinematic and kinetic variables are obtained. The proposed model is implemented with the Zaremba–Jaumann rate and is used to solve the problem of rectilinear shear for a perfectly plastic and for a linear kinematic hardening material. Neither solution produces oscillatory stress or backstress components. The model is then used to predict the nonlinear hardening behavior of SUS 304 stainless steel under fixed-end finite torsion. Results obtained are in good agreement with reported experimental data. The Swift effect under finite torsion is well predicted by the proposed model.
