A COVARIANT FORMULATION OF ANISOTROPIC FINITE PLASTICITY:

Comp. Meth. Appl. Mech. Engrg., 193, 5339-5358, (2004)
The implications of the postulate of covariance are examined for the
anisotropic elastic-plastic solid. A definition of symmetry based on
Noll's intrinsic theory of material response is proposed.
Canonical constitutive equations for the plastic variables and
the structural tensors that characterize the anisotropic response
are derived and discussed.
