This paper illustrates the formulation of viscoplastic-damage constitutive models using the framework of hyperplasticity.
The entire constitutive behaviour is derived from only two scalar potentials; a free energy potential and a dissipation
potential. This ensures that the model obeys the laws of thermodynamics.
