The consistency condition

An expression for in terms of the stress and strain rate is required in Equation 30 to complete the plasticity model. Differentiating Equation 8 with time gives the consistency condition, which defines .


For linear hardening,


Noting that σ^/σ= sqrt(3/2n) for the von Mises equivalent stress, the expression for simplifies to
