A High-Performance Reduced-Order Model (HPROM) technique, previously presented by the authors in the context of hierarchical multiscale models for non linear-materials undergoing infinitesimal strains, is generalized to deal with large deformation elasto-plastic problems. The proposed HPROM technique uses a Proper Orthogonal Decomposition procedure to build a reduced basis of the primary kinematical variable of the micro-scale problem, defined in terms of the micro-deformation gradient fluctuations. Then a Galerkin-projection, onto this reduced basis, is utilized to reduce the dimensionality of the micro-force balance equation, the stress homogenization equation and the effective macro-constitutive tangent tensor equation. Finally, a reduced goal-oriented quadrature rule is introduced to compute the non-affine terms of these equations. Main importance in this paper is given to the numerical assessment of the developed HPROM technique. The numerical experiments are performed on a micro-cell simulating a randomly distributed set of elastic inclusions embedded into an elasto-plastic matrix. This micro-structure is representative of a typical ductile metallic alloy. The HPROM technique applied to this type of problem displays high computational speed-ups, increasing with the complexity of the finite element model. From these results, we conclude that the proposed HPROM technique is an effective computational tool for modeling, with very large speed-ups and acceptable accuracy levels with respect to the high-fidelity case, the multiscale behavior of heterogeneous materials subjected to large deformations involving two well-separated scales of length.
