In this part a rate-dependent elastic-plastic constitutive model is presented which is an extension of our earlier rate-indpendent model. The effect of prior creep on the subsequent inelastic deformation is also included. The model can be used to predict inelastic processes with variable strain (stress) rates. It is shown, through comparison with the experimental results, that most of the rate-effect features of the material response can be simulated by the model. Despite the wide range of application, the model is relatively simple and incorporated a few material constants which could be easily determined from standard tests.
