Constitutive equations based on a state variable modeling of the thermo-viscoplastic behavior of metals are discussed, and incorporated in an exact, long-wavelength analysis of the neck-growth process in uniaxial tension. The general formalism is specialized to the case of f.c.c. metals in the range of intragranular, diffusion controlled plastic flow. The model is shown to provide a consistent account of aluminum behavior both under constant strain-rate and creep. Calculated uniaxial tensile ductilities and rupture lives in creep are also compared with experiments.
