We propose an interior penalty discontinuous finite element method for small strain elasto-plasticity using triangular or tetrahedral meshes. A new penalty formulation suitable for plasticity, in particular allowing for inter-element slip, is introduced. The method is also locking free, which is crucial as the plastic zone may exhibit an incompressible response. Numerical results are presented.
