Improving the initial guess for the Newton-Raphson protocol in time-dependent simulations

by   Jasper Volmer, et al.

A general linearisation procedure for the consistent tangent of a small-strain visco-plastic material model is presented in this note. The procedure is based on multi-variable linearisation around a so-called 'reference state'. In particular, the linerarisation of the time integration scheme is found to yield an extra term compared to classical expressions, which only appears because the material response is time-dependent. It has the effect of yielding a very accurate initial guess for the Newton-Raphson protocol based on the ongoing viscous flow. It is shown, using a modern variational FFT-based solver, that the extra term reduces both the CPU time and the number of Newton-Raphson iterations by around a factor two.
