A finite-strain plasticity model based on the symmetric plastic strain

$\mathbf C_p=\mathbf P^\top \mathbf P $

(where P is the usual plastic deformation
tensor) is discussed.

Such assumption reflects the invariance of the model with respect to frame
transformations of the intermediate configuration. A quasi-static setting is assumed for
elastic response, while the plastic flow rule is expressed in a variational form in terms
of free-energy and dissipation potentials, corresponding to a rate-independent evolution.

The resulting variational model is lower-dimensional, symmetric,
and based solely on the reference configuration. We discuss the existence of energetic
solutions for the quasistatic boundary-value problem.

These solutions are constructed as limits of time discretizations.
