Plastic dissipation calculation: solid.Wp

I am running a time dependent model of a crack growing and propagating in an elasto-plastic medium (solid mechanic module) and i am analyzing its energy balance evolution in function of time.
I was curious to know how the plastic dissipation energy density (solid.Wp) is calculated by Comsol. I looked into the equation thanks to the option "equation view" but i didn´t find anything. Does anyone know how this variable is calculated?
Thank you very much,
