In this work we investigate the plastic instabilities associated with the Portevin-Le Chatelier (PLC) effect in Al alloy 2024. A semi-phenomenological approach is taken. A simple geometrically non-linear elastic-viscoplastic constitutive model is proposed for simulation of material response under various applied strain rates. Using the model we determine numerically the relation between the critical strain for the onset of discontinuous yielding and the applied strain rate.
