The feasibility of a viscoplastic model incorporating two back stresses and a drag strength is investigated for performing nonlinear finite element analyses of structural engineering problems. The model has recently been put forth by Freed and Walker. The feasibility of the viscoplastic model is demonstrated for nonlinear structural analyses by implementing the model into a finite element program and performing nonlinear finite element analyses for several uniaxial and multiaxial problems. Good agreement is shown to exist between the results obtained using the finite element implementation and those obtained experimentally. The advantages of using advanced viscoplastic models for performing nonlinear finite element analyses of structural components are indicated.
