The role of plastic spin within the framework ofa phenomenological polycrystalline plasticity is examined. We show that if elastic and plastic strain rates are properly identified, partitioning of total spin and identification of its “plastic” part is not required in the elastoplastic constitutive analysis of elastically isotropic materials.
