A classification of various formulations coined as generalized plasticity is introduced. Thereby the authors present variants of both gradient and micromorphic plasticity, which prove thermodynamically consistent by fulfilling the second law of thermodynamics. In a structured manner, they vary key characteristic features of the formulation and compare their influence on the complexity and, in particular, on the benefit of the individual formulations.
