An incremental constitutive relation of friction contact is presented for large deformation analysis. After a brief review of published explanations of friction, a model is constructed following the established concepts of plasticity theory. Extensive studies are laid on how the theory closely simulates the nature of friction and how the unknown parameters in the equation are to be determined from the existing experimental results. Possible extensions to allow considerations of temperature and nonlocal effects are discussed. Formulations of a quasistatic boundary value problem based on the updated Lagrangian approach are summarized. The elastoplastic material is assumed to behave according to the generalized Prandtl-Reuss constitutive equation. Finite element methods are employed to solve the problem. Two examples are selected to demonstrate the capability and adequacy of the proposed model.
