To illustate the effect of the choice of corotational rates at large plastic deformations, expressions for the stresses developing in large simple shear are obtained in closed analytical form under the assumptions of a rigid-plastic material response and a Mises type isotropically and kinematically hardening constitutive model for two different corotational rates applied to the stress and the back-stress tensors. The observed difference in the simple shear response and the relative merits of the foregoing and other corotational rates are discussed, and a novel approach is proposed based on Mandel’ work and the representation theorem for isotropic second-order antisymmetric tensor valued functions.
