A numerical integration scheme is presented for integration of the pressure-sensitive yield criterion due to Gurson, suitable for explicit dynamic finite element calculations. This scheme utilizes a sub-increment approach to Mayntain stability for the large strain increments and intense triaxiality that can occur under high strain rate loading. A number of validation problems are presented after which two laboratory-scale high strain experiments are simulated. The integration scheme is shown to be stable and to capture the onset of tensile fracture under high strain rate loading conditions.
