# vumat for isotropic perfect plastic

Hi all,

I wrote VUMAT subroutine using fortran 77 for perfect plasticity unisng von mises plasticity..when analysed it using unidirectional tensile simulation for a simple cube model...it seems to me that it only goes through elastic deformation and not plastic...i tried to find out what is the error..but could not find it..could anyone please find what is the error in this code..i have attached the VUMAT code for the reference...thank you very much...

## you didn't define "third"

you didn't define "third" .... third should have value in this line ...

smean = third*(s11+s22+s33)

may be there are some other mistakes .....

## code is in manual

Hello

see Abaqus Verification Manual

4.1.28 VUMAT: rotating cylinder

You need to modify the code if you simulate in 3D.

Good luck

## hello

Thank you very much all..i got correct it..

## How to write a VUMAT for multiphases

Hi everyone. I would like to know how to get started with a VUMAT subroutine for multiphases for example a subroutine for pore water and sand. It could be helpful when anyone could share VUMAT subroutines for learning such complex programmings. Could be appreciated when some one teaches with equations. thank you.
