Are you thinking about the sigmaEq = sqrt((3.0/2.0)*magSqr(dev(sigma))) in calculateStress.H ?? I have been thinking about the same thing. The best I have come up with is what is written in the book by Mase (Schaum's Outline of Continuum Mechanics by George Mase). See Equation (8.24), page 182. But that chapter is about "strain hardening rules" (increase in material strength by strain) which I dont think is relevant in the solidDisplacementFoam (Lamé constants of elasticity are constants here, i.e. not dependent on stress). So it would be nice to have another reference to the application of equivalent stress, in which constant elasticity is assumed. I have also just added von Mises (i.e. sqrt(S:S/2)) in to this part and used that. But I dont know how correct that is since I am not a specialist in solid mechanics. Hope this helps cheers J.

Search for elastic Stress and Wikipedia. There are good references.
