Algorithms are presented which allow the extension of the ALE (Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian) formulation, well established in the hydrodynamics field, to structural materials with memory, namely, nonlinear path-dependent materials. The formulation is implemented in a general computer code for fast transient dynamic analysis within an explicit time integration stencil and is used in the simulation of forming processes.
