function [Material_State2,D_ep]=Elastic_Plastic_Model(Material,Material_State,e)

Material: A variable containing material properties Material.E (modulus of elasticity), Material.v (poisson ratio) and Material.f_y (yield stress)

Material_State: A history variable containing material state variables at previous increment or iteration. it includes Material_State.s (stress vector) , Material_State.e (strain vector) and Material_State.k (hardening parameter)

Initial values for these history variables should be zeros

IMPORTANT: for this model, this variable should be called from the last converged state of material ((i.e. end of previous increment not from the last iteration) in order to avoid spurious unloading. See Section 6.2 in Crisfrield book [1]

e: Strain vector in the current iteration.

Material_State2: A history variable containing material state variables at current iteration

D_ep: Tangent constitutive matrix
