If you cannot use the Dual Network Fluoropolymer (DNF) [URL= http://polymerfem.com/index.php?pageid=umats ]model[/URL], then I suggest that you try a metal plasticity model. If you are concerned about cyclic loading then you should use a kinematic hardening model, if you are mostly interested in static or monotonic loading then you can use an isotropic hardening metal plasticity model.

Best of luck,
Jorgen
