Yield and plastic potential surfaces are often affected by problems related to con-vexity. One such problem is encountered when the yield surface that bounds the elastic domain is itself convex; however, convexity is lost when the surface expands to pass through stress points outside the current elastic domain. In this paper, a technique is proposed, which effectively corrects this problem by providing linear homothetic expansion with respect to the centre of the yield surface. A very compact implicit integration scheme is also presented, which is of general applicability for isotropic constitutive models, provided that their yield and plastic potential functions are based on a separate mathematical definition of the meridional and deviatoric sections and that stress invariants are adopted as mechanical quantities. The elastic predictor-plastic corrector algorithm is based on the solution of a system of 2 equations in 2 unknowns only. This further reduces to a single equation and unknown in the case of yield and plastic potential surfaces with a linear meridional section. The effectiveness of the proposed convexification technique and the efficiency and stability of the integration scheme are investigated by running numerical analyses of a notoriously demanding boundary value problem.
