Abstract A constitutive model for a porous metal subjected to general three-dimensional finite deformations is presented. The model takes into account the evolution of porosity and the development of anisotropy due to changes in the shape and the orientation of the voids during deformation. A methodology for the numerical integration of the elastoplastic constitutive model is developed. Finally, some sample applications to plane strain extrusion and compaction of a porous disk are considered using the finite element method.
