# 1.3. Plasticity



The purpose of the plasticity constitutive law is to introduce in the computation the dynamics of plastic flow, which means to calculate the plastic shear strain rate of every slip system $\dot{\gamma}^\alpha$ as a function of the second Piola–Kirchhoff stress $\tnsr S$.

The type of plasticity laws used are selected by subroutines inside constitutive.f90
