    Abstract

    A Newton algorithm is discussed. This algorithm allows for studying nonlinear material behavior, such as plasticity and viscoplasticity. The material behavior is described by so-called internal variables. The model applied in this paper was developed by Lemaitre and Chaboche. The Newton algorithm is implemented as a user-subroutine in the commercial finite-element method package ABAQUS. The results of a numerical analysis of the rotation of an aircraft turbine disk are presented. Cyclic loading conditions are studied, and the results are compared with numerical results in the literature.
