Development of a finite deformation elasto‐plasticity model based on the multiplicative decomposition of the deformation gradient is presented and discussed in detail. The formulation presented in this paper includes the derivation of the full set of equations for the Drucker‐Prager yield criterion. The equations, which are not available elsewhere, are developed within a framework using a spectral decomposition approach. Further, expressions for the consistent (algorithmic) tangent moduli in the finite strain regime are developed. Since the finite deformation framework employed to obtain the expressions presented here collapses to the classical infinitesimal plasticity framework when the finite strain assumption is no longer necessary, the finite deformation consistent tangent moduli are compared to the consistent tangent moduli valid for use with infinitesimal plasticity. Validation of the implemented finite deformation elasto‐plastic Drucker‐Prager model is performed through the solution of the concrete slump test. Comparisons between an existing approximate analytical solution and experimental data are presented, and results are discussed in detail.
