The main goal of the article is to compare a computational efficiency of different implementation of a hyperelastic material model in the ABAQUS/Standard v. 6.14 . The software offers basically two ways to proceed, namely UMAT and UHYPER user subroutines . The procedures are employed to implement an isotropic, compressible neo-Hookean material model . Corresponding stored-energy function, constitutive equations and the consistent tangent operator are presented. These are essential to program the subroutines. Some theoretical and numerical aspects of different implementation approaches are discussed. As examples, a tube under axial compression and a contact problem of disc are considered. On the basis of obtained results, selected aspects of computational efficiency and quality of solutions are compared.
