Several strategies for numerical time-integration of some stiff constitutive models of inelastic deformation are presented in this paper. Numerical results and comparisons are presented for the integration of one such model for the case of uniaxial deformation under various prescribed histories of stress or strain. A simple one step Euler type integration scheme with automatic time-step control, which can be easily adapted to the solution of multiaxial boundary value problems, appears promising.
