For the time-integration of stiff constitutive models of inelastic deformation, the explicit (one step Euler) integration scheme can be used provided the time step size is closely monitored and controlled. The time step size control scheme based on prescribed error bounds is of limited use because it requires an a priori estimate of the maximum nonelastic strain rate for the selection of a proper error bound. In this paper, a new scheme for time-step size control is presented. This scheme automatically scales the time-step size by the maximum nonelastic strain rate. That the new scheme is superior to the old one is evident from the results of the various problems presented here.
