In general, internal cells are required to solve large deformation problems using a conventional boundary element method (BEM). However, in this case, the merit of BEM, which is the ease of data preparation, is lost. Triple-reciprocity BEM enables us to solve elastoplasticity problems with a small plastic deformation. In this study, it is shown that two-dimensional large plastic deformation problems with a friction coefficient can be solved without the use of internal cells, by the triple-reciprocity BEM. Initial stress and strain formulations are adopted and the initial stress or strain distribution is interpolated using boundary integral equations. In this method, only boundary elements are remeshed. A new computer program is developed and used to solve several problems.
