In this work, we develop a position-based finite element formulation for elasto-plastic solids under contact situation. The proposed positional formulation employs a total Lagrangian description and naturally considers geometric nonlinearities. The employed elasto-plastic model is derived from the dissipation inequality, using the thermodynamic conjugacy between the plastic strain rate and the so-called Mandel stress. The formulation is based on the Kroner-Lee decomposition, in which the deformation gradient is multiplicatively split into its elastic and plastic parts. We apply the backward Euler method to solve the plastic evolutions and von Mises yield criterion to define the elastic limit. The adopted kinematic hardening model is a finite strain generalization of the Armstrong-Frederick law, which uses the objective Jaumann derivative for the evolution equation and the concept of back stress tensor as an internal variable. For the elastic parcel of strains, we adopt a neo-Hookean constitutive law. With respect to the 2D application, plane strain and plane stress approximations are considered, where the latter is solved numerically by a local Newton-Raphson numerical procedure. Regarding the contact problem, a classical node-to-segment algorithm is applied, considering both frictionless and frictional cases, with the introduction of Lagrange multipliers in order to enforce contact constraints. Representative numerical examples are used to validate and show the possibilities of the proposed formulation in macroscale simulation of metal cold forming manufacturing processes. (AU)
