Thermodynamical consistency of plasticity models is usually written in terms of the so-called \maximum dissipation principle". In this paper, we discuss constitutive relations for dissipative materials writ-
ten through suitable generalized gradients of a (possibly non-convex) metric. This new framework allows us to generalize the classical results
providing an interpretation of the yield function in terms of Hamilton-Jacobi Equations theory.
