Thermodynamical consistency of plasticity models is usually written in terms of the so-called “maximum dissipation principle”. In this paper, we discuss constitutive relations for dissipation written in terms of suitable generalized gradients of a (possibly non-convex) metric. This new framework allows us to generalize the classical results providing an interpretation the yield function of the system in terms of Hamilton-Jacobi Equations theory.
