Plastic flow potential for cone region on the MRS-Lade model

Pérez-Foguet, A., Huerta, Antonio
The original formulation of the MRS-Lade model, with nonassociated flow rule on the meridian plane in the cone region, has a corner. In order to reduce the computational effort of corner solution algorithms, a modified plastic flow potential for the cone part is found in the literature. This modification may have a nonadmissible flip over of the flow vector in the cone-cap intersection if the plastic flow potential is not correctly defined. Here a corrected plastic flow potential for the cone region is defined to obtain a continuous transition of the flow vector.
