where is the current critical resolved shear stress, is initial critical resolved shear stress, is the saturation resolved shear stress, is the matrix containing self and latent hardening coefficients; and are hardening parameters.

Like for the others crystal plasticity routines values of all the parameters can be specified by groups of slip systems.

This UseroOject assumes that slip systems are provided in a well defined order and are grouped by planes (see modules/tensor_mechanics/test/tests/cp_user_object/input_slip_sys_bcc48.txt for BCC crystals and modules/tensor_mechanics/test/tests/cp_user_object/input_slip_sys.txt for FCC)

Seven variables need to be specified and one value is required for each group:

  • groups in which groups of slip systems are listed

  • h0_group_values value for each slip system group

  • tau0_group_values value for each slip system group

  • tauSat_group_values = value for each slip system group

  • hardeningExponent_group_values value for each slip system group

  • selfHardening_group_values

  • coplanarHardening_group_values for co-planar slip systems in the same group

  • GroupGroup_Hardening_group_values This parameter requires NxN values with N being the number of groups. Values are listed as (e.g. ij=11,12,21,22) with being the actual group and the secondary group. For the value represents the latent hardening coefficient between one slip system and all the non co-planar ones belonging the the same group. For , the value represents the latent hardening coefficient between all the slip systems belonging to group and . Note that, usually, the matrix associated with GroupGroup_Hardening_group_values is symmetric.
