The behavior of two stress update algorithms for shear-free large deformation paths is analyzed. The first algorithm has a truncation error of order 1. The second algorithm has a truncation error of order 2. As a consequence, the global performance of the second algorithm is clearly superior. However, for the particular case of shear-free deformation paths, the first algorithm correctly predicts null shear stresses, while the second one does not. This behavior was reported in a previous paper for an extension-rotation test. In this note a general shear-free deformation path is considered in full detail.
