Elastic strain is covered by the effective medium homogenization method inside a representative volume element (RVE). It has an incremental quasi rate-independent (QRI) form obtained by the endochronic concept of thermodynamic time. The rate dependence takes place by means of stress rate dependent value of the initial yield stress. Free meso rotations and constrained micro rotations within a representative volume element (RVE) are assumed. A comparison between QRI and J2 diffuse instability equations is presented for orthotropic materials. A new QRI nonlinear evolution equation for orthotropic materials is derived by tensor function representation with Spencer-Boehler structural tensors.
