In this paper an alternative J2 material model with isotropic hardening for finite-strain elastoplastic analyses is presented. The model is based on a new nonlinear continuum mechanical theory of finite deformations of elastoplastic media which allows us to describe the plastic flow in terms of various instances of the yield surface and corresponding stress measures in the initial and current configurations of the body. The approach also allows us to develop thermodynamically consistent

Consequently, the models not only do comply with the principles of material modelling, but also use constitutive equations, evolution equations and even 'normality rules' during return mapping which can be expressed in terms of power conjugate stress and strain measures or their objective rates. Therefore, such models and the results of the analyses employing them no longer depend on the description and the particularities of the material model formulation. Here we briefly present an improved version of our former material model capable of modelling ductile-to brittle failure mode transition and demonstrate the model in a numerical example using a fully coupled thermal-structural analysis.
