You mean that you have a 2D problem but with a 3D displacement ?

The goal is to compute the tangent matrix and the residue, so gradU is the
gradient of the displacement of the current state (ok for preceding
iteration).

ok

yes, it is computed because the term (Id+grad U) intervene in the expression
of weak form. this is the gradient of the deformation.

Yes, for version = 0 this is the tangent terms (rigidity terms) and for
version = 1 just the term (Id+grad U) multiplied by the stress tensor.

This is the (ugly) computation of the whole tangent term. In particular the
multiplication of a fourth order tangent tensor given by AHL.grad_sigma(E,
tt, params). I agree that this could be simplified in practical situations
but the goal was to make a generic computation in a first time.

If you need more explanations, I think I have something writen somewhere on
that particular expression.
