Abstract Analysis of large deformation of elastic-viscoplastic materials has been performed in this paper using the finite element method with the arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian description. An overstress type viscoplastic model using the internal variable approach in a rotated stress-strain space characterizes the material. Stable and efficient integration techniques for the viscoplastic relations are discussed. A linearized form in the ALE description is presented which is to be solved using iteration techniques. In particular the quasi-Newton methods have been used in this analysis. Several test problems which have been considered illustrate the effectiveness of the entire solution algorithm.
