This paper presents a general algorithmic formulation for constitutive equations describing inelastic material deformation. The algorithmic representation focuses on the generality and modularity which is a key aspect within the development phase of constitutive equations. It is shown explicitly how to solve the incremental constitutive equations by use of objective algorithms and an implicitinte gration scheme applying numerical as well as analytical derivatives. Although it is shown that using numerical gradients is significantly slower, their application is easier especially in the development phase. It is also demonstrated that having the constitutive equations modeled in the general context introduced, the issue of parameter identification can be tackled by the same implementation using a driver algorithm.
