Large strain model can be formulated in terms of the Lagrangian or the Eulerian frame. In this paper, the Eulerian type large strain models are studied. Numerical examples on the Lagrangian and Eulerian types large strain models are investigated and compared. It is found that the differences in the choice of large strain model under large strain and rotation problems are noticeable but not significant if small load step is used for analysis. Furthermore, we have also found that unsymmetrical formulation instead of symmetrical formulation should be adopted for Eulerian type large strain models.
