We present three velocity-based updated Lagrangian formulations for standard and quasi-incompressible hypoelastic-plastic solids. Three low-order finite elements are derived and tested for non-linear solid mechanics problems. The so-called V-element is based on a standard velocity approach, while a mixed velocity–pressure formulation is used for the VP and the VPS elements. The two-field problem is solved via a two-step Gauss–Seidel partitioned iterative scheme. First, the momentum equations are solved in terms of velocity increments, as for the V-element. Then, the constitutive relation for the pressure is solved using the updated velocities obtained at the previous step. For the VPS-element, the formulation is stabilized using the finite calculus method in order to solve problems involving quasi-incompressible materials. All the solid elements are validated by solving two-dimensional and three-dimensional benchmark problems in statics as in dynamics.
