Block Format Keyword This law describes plasticity hardening by a userdefined function and can be used only with shell elements.
This is an elastoplastic orthotropic law for modeling anisotropic materials in forming processes especially aluminum alloys. This material law must be used with property set type /PROP/TYPE9 (SH_ORTH) or /PROP/TYPE10 (SH_COMP).

 The anisotopic yield criteria
F for plane stress is defined by:
(1) $$F=a{\left{K}_{1}+{K}_{2}\right}^{m}+a{\left{K}_{1}{K}_{2}\right}^{m}+c{\left2{K}_{2}\right}^{m}2{{\sigma}_{y}}^{m}=0$$Where,
${\sigma}_{y}$ is the yield stress
${K}_{1}=\frac{{\sigma}_{xx}+h{\sigma}_{yy}}{2}$ and ${K}_{2}=\sqrt{{\left(\frac{{\sigma}_{xx}h{\sigma}_{yy}}{2}\right)}^{2}+{p}^{2}{\sigma}_{xy}^{2}}$
 Angles for Lankford parameters are defined with respect to orthotropic direction 1.
The material constants a, c, h, and
p are obtained from the three Lankford parameters:
(2) $$\begin{array}{l}a=22\sqrt{\frac{{r}_{00}}{1+{r}_{00}}}\sqrt{\frac{{r}_{90}}{1+{r}_{90}}}\\ c=2a\\ h=\sqrt{\frac{{r}_{00}}{1+{r}_{00}}}\sqrt{\frac{1+{r}_{90}}{{r}_{90}}}\end{array}$$Material constant p is calculated by solving:(3) $$\frac{2m\cdot {\sigma}_{y}{}^{m}}{\left(\frac{\partial F}{\partial {\sigma}_{xx}}+\frac{\partial F}{\partial {\sigma}_{yy}}\right){\sigma}_{45}}1{r}_{45}=0$$  If the last point of the first (static) function equals 0 in stress, the default value of ${\epsilon}_{p}^{max}$ is set to the corresponding value of ${\epsilon}_{p}$ .
 If ${\epsilon}_{p}$ (plastic strain) reaches ${\epsilon}_{p}^{\mathrm{max}}$ , in one integration point, the corresponding shell element is deleted.
 If the largest principal strain
${\epsilon}_{1}>{\epsilon}_{t}$
, the stress is reduced using the following
relation:
(4) $$\sigma =\sigma \left(\frac{{\epsilon}_{m}{\epsilon}_{1}}{{\epsilon}_{m}{\epsilon}_{t}}\right)$$  If ${\epsilon}_{1}>{\epsilon}_{m}$ , the stress is reduced to 0 (but the element is not deleted).
 The maximum number of curves is 10.
 If $\dot{\epsilon}\le {\dot{\epsilon}}_{n}$ , the yield is interpolated between f_{n} and f_{n1}.
 If $\dot{\epsilon}\le {\dot{\epsilon}}_{1}$ , function f_{1} is used.
 Above ${\dot{\epsilon}}_{\mathrm{max}}$ , yield is extrapolated.
 The evolution of
Young's modulus:
 If fct_ID_{E} > 0, the curve defines a scale factor for Young's modulus evolution with equivalent
plastic strain, which means the Young's modulus is scaled by the function
$\mathrm{f}\left({\overline{\epsilon}}_{p}\right)$
:
(5) $$E\left(t\right)=E\cdot \mathrm{f}\left({\overline{\epsilon}}_{p}\right)$$The initial value of the scale factor should be equal to 1 and it decreases.
 If fct_ID_{E} = 0, the Young's modulus is calculated as:
(6) $$E\left(t\right)=E\left(E{E}_{inf}\right)\left[1\mathrm{exp}\left({C}_{E}{\overline{\epsilon}}_{p}\right)\right]$$Where, E and E_{inf} are respectively the initial and asymptotic value of Young's modulus, and ${\overline{\epsilon}}_{p}$ is the accumulated equivalent plastic strain.
Note: If fct_ID_{E} = 0 and C_{E} = 0, Young's modulus, E is kept constant.
 If fct_ID_{E} > 0, the curve defines a scale factor for Young's modulus evolution with equivalent
plastic strain, which means the Young's modulus is scaled by the function
$\mathrm{f}\left({\overline{\epsilon}}_{p}\right)$
